Pablo Picasso's tragic and poignant "Old Guitarist" was created during his Blue Period (1901 - 1904), after a close friend's suicide plunged him into a deep depression.

Time-Traveling With the Muses in Boston

15th January 2010 (

BOSTON — You love art. When and where did that start? In school? At home? In books? For me it began when I was a kid in the 1950s and '60s, before and during my teens. The primal scene was divided between two Boston museums where I spent a lot of time.

The solo shows on view provide in-depth exposure to the efforts of three young artists who work in film, performance, sound and other time-based mediums, and suggest some exciting new approaches to reinventing and recombining Post Minimalismís diverse strains, especially the emphasis on language and the use of dispersed, decentered installations.

How bright is the future for arts graduates?

15 July 2009 (

A couple of weeks ago, there was a sea of headlines pondering the bleak outlook for people leaving university this summer: up to a third of graduate jobs have vanished, said the research, and the Guardian reported that up to 40,000 of this year's graduates face unemployment. I suspect those figures will raise long-suffering smirks from anyone who works in the performing arts. As I wrote yesterday, according to research done in 2005, two-thirds of Equity's 40,000-odd members are unemployed at any one time. On average – and measured over an entire career – theatre professionals spend more time working outside the industry than within it. While no one will be overjoyed at the prospect of graduating without a job this summer, one group of graduates in particular has never expected anything different.

Playwrights Horizons, Vineyard Theater Pair Up for ‘Burnt Part Boys’

3 April 2009 (

With the recession and unpredictable ticket sales leading theater producers to tighten their belts, two New York not-for-profit theaters announced Thursday afternoon that they would co-produce a new musical, “The Burnt Part Boys,” sharing the costs as they work toward an Off-Broadway premiere next spring. While co-productions by two theaters in different cities are common enough — allowing a show to be seen in each place — a joint effort by two theaters in New York is somewhat unusual, although theater industry leaders expect it to become more common because of declining revenues and donations hitting not-for-profit stages.

A Frizzy, Fizzy Welcome to the Untamed ’60s

1 April 2009 (

You’ll be happy to hear that the kids are all right. Quite a bit more than all right. Having moved indoors to Broadway from the Delacorte Theater in Central Park — where last summer they lighted up the night skies, howled at the moon and had ticket seekers lining up at dawn — the young cast members of Diane Paulus’s thrilling revival of “Hair” show no signs of becoming domesticated.
