A Grand 'Wicked' Fills The Stage At Oakdale

The national tour of the long-running Oz-stravaganza bobs, weaves, flies, glimmers, and engages in swordplay with wands and brooms. This is the show's fifth time in Connecticut, and the first time it's played somewhere other than The Bushnell.

          X-Rated John Waters Film 'Multiple Maniacs' At Cinestudio

          In 1970, a Baltimore circuit court judge ruled that John Waters' film "Multiple Maniacs" was "obnoxious but not legally obscene."

                    Yale Rep's Risk-Taking 'Seven Guitars' Hypnotic

                    In 1928, Antonin Artaud, creator of the "Theater of Cruelty" movement showed his distaste for the French writer and diplomat Paul Claudel by staging one of his plays as a devastating lampoon, with Artaud denouncing the writer onstage as "an infamous traitor." That's one way of reassessing a script...
