My (somewhat belated) review of Sam Shepard’s new play Heartless at Signature Theater, featuring a terrific cast headed by Lois Smith (above center), has just been posted on CultureVulture.net. Check it out here and let me know what you think. It’s quite an unusual play for Shepard, harkening back to his early, very wild and free plays — not to everybody’s taste but definitely to mine. The show runs only one more week, so if you’re inclined to go, don’t wait.

My review of Sam Gold’s environmental production of Uncle Vanya has just been posted on CultureVulture.net. Check it out here and let me know what you think.
I will say that I was late getting around to seeing this production (whose excellent cast includes Merritt Wever, Reed Birney, and Michael Shannon, above), and it’s a revelation. It has been extended but must close August 26. If you’re inclined to order tickets, don’t wait but go here.
