  • 'We Will Rock You' totally misses Queen's mercurial nature

    'We Will Rock You' totally misses Queen's mercurial nature
    What a betrayal. That's what I kept thinking during the long, slow slog through rock 'n' roll cliché that is "We Will Rock You," the jukebox musical built around the songs of Queen that opened Wednesday night at the Ahmanson Theatre. A king-sized...
  • 'Romeo and Juliet' remains timeless, no matter the era

     'Romeo and Juliet' remains timeless, no matter the era
    Plays, regardless of when they were written, take place in the eternal present. Updating a classic — for example, resetting Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" in late-1920s Los Angeles, as Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles has done — is a tried-...

  • For 'Venus in Fur' author, working with Roman Polanski was 'heaven'

     For 'Venus in Fur' author, working with Roman Polanski was 'heaven'
    Beyond his many accomplishments as a dramatist, author, humorist and all-around urban wit, David Ives can also lay claim to a reasonably good impression of Roman Polanski. The lanky, owlish playwright was seated in a cramped coffee shop a few blocks...
  • Rupert Murdoch-inspired satire 'Great Britain' opens in London

    Rupert Murdoch-inspired satire 'Great Britain' opens in London
    A thinly veiled satire of the phone-hacking scandal that engulfed Rupert Murdoch's tabloid newspaper empire, "Great Britain" is a play with a surfeit of topical relevance. The new stage drama by "One Man, Two Guvnors" playwright Richard Bean opened this...
  • Classic sampling in 'The Curse of Oedipus' at Antaeus Theater

    Classic sampling in 'The Curse of Oedipus' at Antaeus Theater
