Boston Marriage, New York Public
The New York City premiere is dominated by Kate Burton, whom we saw recently as Hedda in Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. She plays Anna, a middle-aged, fashionable lesbian, in a highly mannered way. She maintains a china-doll smile as she utters portentous, literate babble in a high-society style. Her younger counterpart, Claire, played deftly by Martha Plimpton, is returning to her old haunts after an indeterminate absence. Anna and Claire together take up the endless badinage of Gwendolyn and Cecily in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.

Book Review: Five Cities of Refuge
Stan Denman reviews Mamet's book written with his Rabbi, “reflections on Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy,” the Books of the Pentateuch. Kushner and Mamet make a great team in this worthy effort, due in large part to their kindred abilities to write cogently and effectively concerning the common, the ugly, and the unlikable in sacred passages without compromising a sense of reverence for the text.

The Old Neighborhood
In the Aurora Theatre Company, Berkeley, California, Michael Santo plays a particularly bland and understated Bobby. Although he initiates the action—which unsurprisingly in Mametland consists primarily of a series duologues—but remains more spectator (or specter) than participant.
