You could also, dangerously but not inaccurately, describe The Landing as 'the new John Kander musical.' While 'a musical' leads us to expect things that aren't quite present, labeling it a new Kander musical is far more problematic.

People sometimes ask me what feature on a person's face is the most important in creating a caricature. When I'm drawing a famous face, that's pretty easy, as it would be the feature most people think of when they think of that particular celebrity.

Theater: Breakfast At Tiffany's Leaves You Hungry; Vanya, Sonia... Leaves You Laughing

Greenberg has taken the merest suggestion that Fred is gay in the novella and made it a fitful subplot. This would be fine if Greenberg made something of it; perhaps Holly would help Fred accept being gay with her free-spirited nature?

Whenever I am blue, I can snap out of it conjuring Sigourney Weaver's image as Snow White. That was the take away when I saw Christopher Durang's Chekhovian mash up, Masha, Sonia, Vanya and Spike.

There's a huge difference between sketch-writing and playwriting, but Christopher Durang often seems to have trouble remembering what it is.

Theater: Close Up Space Wastes Talented David Hyde Pierce

The opening scene of Molly Smith Metzler's comedic play Close Up Space is the only good scene. But in fairness it does briskly and efficiently introduce our main character.

Nobody's perfect, least of all The Perfect Host, a thriller that quickly spins out of control, despite a daring performance by David Hyde Pierce in the title role.

At one point, Hyde Pierce and Feinstein said they'd be doing a number originally done by Bing and Frank, "And if you don't know who Bing and Frank are, you're probably in the wrong show." This is true.
