Saint Joan, As Much as You Can, Happy Days

Chicago Saint JoanChicago Shakespeare Theater (312) 595-5600George Bernard Shaw’s “intricately intelligent” 1923 play portrays Joan of Arc as both inspired and insufferable, said Steven Oxman in Variety. This imaginative and playful production reminds audiences of “the value of a company that devotes itself to a playwright’s work over a long period of time.”

Los AngelesAs Much as You CanCelebration Theatre, Hollywood (323) 957-1884A gay black man introduces his white boyfriend to the family in Paul Oakley Stovall’s “out-loud and immensely appealing” new play, said Charlotte Stoudt in the Los Angeles Times. Stovall himself leads a charming cast that includes Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins as his Bible-thumping older sister, Evy.

New YorkHappy DaysBAM Harvey Theater (718) 636-4100“The ground rises up like a hungry grave” in Samuel Beckett’s classic existential fable, said Adam Feldman in Time Out New York. Lead actress Fiona Shaw, buried to her neck in “post-apocalyptic rubble,” mindlessly natters on about everyday matters. Her clear and forceful performance makes this “quite simply the best Beckett production I have seen.”
