First Nighter: James McManus's "Cherry Smoke," Oni Faida Lampley's "Tough Titty"

It's not too often that great passion doomed--make that Great Passion Doomed--hits the boards. There's Romeo and Juliet and Antony and Cleopatra and Cyrano de Bergerac and West Side Story with its Romeo and Juliet bow. Add to the list, though maybe not quite on that lofty level but nothing to turn a nose up at, either--James McManus's Cherry Smoke.

The good things about this episode don't outweigh the bad yet, but I see potential in the brief suspense the confrontation club scene incurs. If anything, Clark is a risk-taker, and maybe it'll be fun watching him screw up every single week.

Golden Boy is a knockout. It's a magnificent exploration of what it means to be an American and how we define success. Set in a lower-class New York neighborhood in 1936, it tells the story of Joe Bonaparte. Like an earlier Bonaparte, he, too, wants to be king of the world.
