Broadway Review: “Heisenberg” at Manhattan Theatre Club at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre

“You’re not. You can hear it. That’s not listening to it. That’s different from listening./You need to follow it. The melody. Try to predict what will happen to it next. It will completely take you by surprise./That’s the secret that nobody knows about music./Music doesn’t exist in the notes. It exists in the spaces between the notes.” – Alex Priest…

Off-Broadway Review: “Incognito” at Manhattan Theatre Club at New York City Center Stage I

“Fool for Love” at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (Closed December 6, 2015)

Manhattan Theatre Club rolls out a kinder, gentle, more cerebral “Fool for Love” at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre with bruises more internal and spiritual than external and physical. Self-discovery on a dualistic battlefield is, after all, more cerebral though the wounds no less severe and long-lasting. True seekers often wrestle with demons in the desert and it is in…
