The week’s other openings

Take Flight; Palomino; Unreasonable Doubt

Take FlightMcCarter Theatre Center, Princeton, N.J. (609) 258-2787John Weidman’s low-budget musical about pioneers of aviation “exhibits more intelligence than all four of this year’s Tony-nominated musicals combined,” said the Newark, N.J., Star-Ledger. A “stirring” libretto humanizes Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh, and the Wright brothers.

PalominoKirk Douglas Theatre, Culver City, Calif. (213) 628-2772David Cale’s seventh one-man show once again proves he can “handle the genre effortlessly,” said The Hollywood Reporter. This time, his simple but well-imagined scenario features a horse-and-buggy driver in Central Park who spins “marginally believable stories of sexual conquests.”

Unreasonable DoubtMiracle Theatre, Miami(305) 444-9293At first, this story of a father’s attempts to avenge the murder of his child seems “altogether grim,” said The Miami Herald. Michael McKeever, however, “isn’t that kind of playwright.” Moments of tenderness temper his suspenseful drama, which succeeds despite an ending that’s “more anticlimactic than powerful.”
