Samuel J. and K.; Falling for Eve; Damn Yankees

Samuel J. and K.Nikos Stage, Williamstown, Mass. (413) 597-3400Mat Smart’s new play contains a “rich premise, filled with deep tension,” said the Albany, N.Y., Times Union. Justin Long and Owiso Odera portray two brothers—one an adoptee from Cameroon—and they “keep the play grounded” even when the plot becomes implausible.

Falling for EveYork Theatre, New York(212) 935-5820Adam and Eve have had countless theatrical reincarnations, said the New York Daily News. But Tony-winning playwright Joe DiPietro and composer Bret Simmons “find something fresh in the garden” with this breezy retelling of Genesis, featuring “bright performances” from Jose Llana and Krystal Joy Brown.

Damn YankeesThe Muny, St. Louis(314) 361-1900Bob Fosse, the original choreographer for Damn Yankees, gave its Faustian plot an evil glamour, said the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Choreographer Mary MacLeod imitates Fosse’s “distinctive style,” while local favorite Lewis Stadlen is “shrewdly sophisticated” as the nefarious Mr. Applegate.
