    "Of Mice and Men" may be a particularly American tale, but Irishman Chris O'Dowd -- who stars with James Franco in the Broadway revival that opened April 15 -- still knew the story well. "Oddly, Steinbeck is quite big in Ireland," O'Dowd said at the...

     Review: Annette Bening pays fine tribute in 'Ruth Draper's Monologues'
    Watching Annette Bening perform the monologues of Ruth Draper at the Geffen Playhouse put me in mind of that lovely music tradition born out of reverence for the past: the tribute album. One doesn't expect a replica on these recordings — no two...
