The other week's openings

<em>Blasted, Razorback, The Underpants </em>

New York
Blasted
Soho Rep., (212) 352-3101
This 1995 play by the late Sarah Kane is a “raw, horrific work that is not meant for anyone with a weak stomach,” said amNewYork. The naturalistic drama takes place between a journalist and his 21-year-old girlfriend while a war rages outside their hotel room.

Los Angeles
Razorback
Theatre Theater, (323) 960-7726
John Pollono’s crime thriller is a comedy “for a post-Sopranos mind-set,” said the Los Angeles Times. The tale of an ex-mobster and his colorful family, making a fresh start in coastal Maine, is funny even when it stretches credulity.

Washington, D.C.
The Underpants
Olney Theatre, (301) 924-3400
“Steve Martin will always be a bit of a wild and crazy guy, but The Underpants essentially belongs among his delicates,” said The Washington Post. His adaptation of the 1911 German play Die Hose is highbrow in approach, but lowbrow in execution.
