It was a suit and tie kind of night -- and not just for the soulful k.d. lang who made her Broadway debut as the new guest star in After Midnight. The evening was the type of party Carrie Bradshaw would attend -- if Carrie Bradshaw went to theater premieres.

We see how an examination of the arts, and one artist in particular, has lessons for every kind of life. Stephen Sondheim, and other artists like him, do not merely entertain; they are teachers.

Today's action adventure films are so full of explosions and special effects that there is little opportunity to imagine what might be going on in the hearts and minds of their major characters

I feel pretty confident that my favorite play of the year, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, will win Best Play and my favorite musical, Matilda, will win Best Musical. (There is a groundswell of support for Kinky Boots.)

First Nighter: The Woefully Misunderstood Damsels in Distress of Passion and Cinderella

David Finkle | Posted 05.18.2013 | Arts
David Finkle

The correct title for the Sondheim-Lapine opus would be Romantic Obsession, and it wouldn't try to ingratiate itself as a depiction of what genuine love is. Passion is anything but a love story.

This Cinderella has a pleasingly old-fashioned touch, a strong cast and a score that may not be the absolute peak of R&H but which is more tuneful and enjoyable than most shows could hope for.

"Glass slippers are back!" shouts the sign outside the Broadway Theatre. And so is entertainment. It took Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella 56 years to get to the Great White Way, but if the shoe still fits, flaunt it.

Of course, when songs so ebullient and/or passionate are this good, who's going to complain? Although a number of the Encores! dust-offs have moved to Broadway, this one certainly won't. Never mind, since it has enough going for it right where it is.

Bonnie & Clyde at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater is a stunner. You don't have to bite the bullet during the first act hoping that something good will come after intermission as you do at most shows. You'll be shot full of excitement as soon as the curtain goes up.
