Woody Allen is up to his old tricks. Real ones, like pulling a rabbit out of a hat. In previous films he's played the magician role himself, but in Magic in the Moonlight he allows the dreamy Colin Firth to handle the willing suspension of disbelief.

After almost 20 years in the business, Chiemi Karasawa made the move from being a script supervisor on feature films to being a producer who made documentaries. When she started making Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, she had no intention of playing musical chairs right into the director's seat as well.

Elaine Stritch is one of those pop-culture figures who you either know too much about or have never heard of. A star of the Broadway stage for 70 years, she landed in New York at 18, took the town by storm and never looked back.

It's quite a feat to pull off gloomy Henrik Ibsen in hipster Brooklyn, but that's precisely what takes place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's (BAM) production of Ibsen's The Master Builder, starring one of the borough's favorite sons, the always-versatile John Turturro.

The least enjoyable possibility when seeing a show after it opens is that it gets bad reviews and everyone just politely soldiers on as best they can. Sadly, this is the case for Relatively Speaking, three one acts with a cast of 15 and direction by John Turturro.
