     REVIEW: 'A Nice Indian Boy' by Rasaka Theatre
    The title of Madhuri Shekar's family comedy, "A Nice Indian Boy," is a sly feint. On the surface, it appears that the nice Indian boy in question is Naveen Gavaskar, the soft-spoken only son of Indian immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area who is...

    Conor McPherson, known for gritty immorality plays, shows tender side
    No one would accuse Conor McPherson of going soft. As Ireland's preeminent playwright, he is renowned for his bruising, binge-drinking, invective-spewing immorality tales. His plays may be more humane than the sadistic farces of his Anglo-Irish...
