    "Manahatta" Yale Repetory Theatre.

    "Manahatta" Yale Repetory Theatre.

    Robert Massimi. Throughout time, things have both changed and have also stayed the same. Playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle constantly brings us from the present, to the past and somewhere in the middle. This play has many constants, variations and much symmetry too it. In the one hour and forty intermission less minutes we go back and forth between a Wall Street firm where a talented, young Indian woman with a propensity for mathematics, who is originally from Oklahoma, lands a job in investment banking. Proud of her Indian roots, she has lost many of the customs and the traditions of her culture. Even though she has to go back and forth to tend to her dying father, she has her eye on the prize... the glory of being a Wall Street big shot.

    "Grand Horizons"

    "Grand Horizons"

    Robert Massimi. In Bess Wohl's playwriting debut on Broadway comes a warm and witty production filled with raucous laughter and delightful acting. Nancy (Jane Alexander and Bill(James Cromwell) decide to get a divorce after fifty years of marriage. It seems that things have been building up for quite some time and the two want to call it quits. As Bill is aloof towards his marriage, he is equally so towards his children and pretty much the same towards everything and everyone he comes in contact with. A former pharmacist, Bill is a regementated person who never missed a day of work in his life. Although not bitter from the outset, it becomes obvious as the play goes on. Not happy about having a gay son, Brian (Michael Urie), he is dismissive towards Brian's weaknesses, his melodrama and his profession. Although Bill respects Ben (Ben McKenzie) a little more, he can't be bothered that his wife is to give birth any day, nor does he share any emotion with his daughter-in-law.

    "Paradise Lost"

    "Paradise Lost"

    Robert Massimi. In The Fellowship For Performing Arts, Max McLean brings forth another body of work that is loyal to the Theater Companies mission... Christian works worldwide, that have a message, as well as inspirational embodiment within its work. In "Paradise Lost" Lucifer has been banished from heaven. Being beaten, he is vindictive and wants revenge. He turns his eye to the Creator's new world, a Paradise inhabited by creatures- male and female - made in his image. Adam and Eve have dominion over this garden of delight where they live in joy and happiness. God gives one stipulation to this place of bliss, they must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
