New Cliché Watch

I've got a new one on what I call Half-Abstraction up this week.  I'm not sure though that I ever really spell out what I mean, which is naturalist plays with abstract sets.  The recent Desire Under The Elms at the Goodman for instance, or last year's Uncle Vanya by the Court Theatre are good examples.  

There are going to be some exciting changes to my column over at the New Colony in the coming weeks: we're going to have guest dissenters and debaters to open up the conversation more, should be a lot of fun.  I'll keep you posted on the developments.  Till then, enjoy this post.
