Are Hot Flashes Revelations To Men?

The show winding up this weekend at the Circle Theatre is called Hot Flashes: Revelations of the Dangerous Age, but one of these days men won’t find such scenes so eye-opening. Not if they’ve encountered this one as well as Menopause: the Musical and The Vagina Monologues.
Director Roxanne Wach, who also directed The V Monologues, calls Hot Flashes “another vignette show,” done with as few as two cast members and...

Time to Weigh TAG Nominees

If you've seen most of the performances, it's more fun finding who got nominated for the Theatre Arts Guild awards than learning later about the winners. Not that any playgoer wouldn't want to attend the 43rd annual TAG Awards Gala in August.
