REVIEW: Marin Ireland in “Summer and Smoke”

Marin Ireland gives a ravishing performance in a first-rate revival of Tennessee Williams’ rarely seen “Summer and Smoke”, jointly produced by Classic Stage Company and Transport Group.  This lyrical, low-rent Southern Gothic tragedy is stripped to its bones by director Jack Cummings, III, allowing the actors to shine uninhibited and deliver riveting and magnetic performances.  This play is a highlight of the spring season in New York, and should not be missed.

"Hangmen" delayed for Broadway; "The Prom" booked the Cort Theatre; Duncan Sheik and Sara Bareilles collaborating on a new "Alice in Wonderland" musical; MCC Theater announces "Collective Rage: A Play in 5 Betties"; Nathan Lane teases  "Death of a Salesman" revival with Laurie Metcalf; Marilu Henner joins "Gettin' the Band Back Together"; Ben Crawford is the next Phantom; tragedy strikes the community as  Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles is seriously injured and her young daughter killed in a traffic accident; controversy roils "Rocktopia" as it is criticized by Actor's Equity for failing to provide union commensurate wages for its chorus
