What can you do with Death of a Salesman, a play that has never really fallen out of circulation since it debuted almost 70 years ago? Just stay out of its way. Here’s my Washington City Paper review of Ford’s Theatre’s new Craig Wallace-starring production, which I loved.

On Around Town, talking Choir Boy, Life Sucks, and The Widow Lincoln.

Three new Around Town play reviews means three new opportunities to attempt to smile on command and to speak in concise sentences that end rather than trail off. (I'll keep working on it.) This time, host Robert Aubry Davis and Washington Post arts writer Jane Horwitz and I discuss Studio Theatre's Choir Boy, Theater J's Life Sucks, Or the Present Ridiculous, and Ford's Theatre'The Widow Lincoln. That's two shows I liked a lot, respectively, plus one I liked, well, more than many others did. (My Washington City Paper reviews are herehere, and here.) I am informed that one of these aired on WETA right after Downton Abbey last night, which I am certain is the best lead-in I shall ever get. We're the A Different World of public broadcasting!

My reviews of The Widow Lincoln, a world premiere play from writer James Still at Ford's Theatre, and of the Folger Theatre's new production of Mary Stuart, are in tomorrow's Washington City Paper, and also right here.
