  • Smallman Street Deli

    A blackboard offers a dizzying array of offerings, including butcher-cut meats and cold cuts to go, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you show up without a specific item in mind, be prepared to spend some time taking it all in.

    "When people in America have seen what's going on in Sudan," a former "Lost Boy" says, "then there's a way we can make peace."
  • Man Push Cart
  • Man Push Cart

    Bahrani employs a deceptively loose documentary style; only upon reflection do you realize how carefully constructed his film is.
  • Because I Said So

    Nothing about this silly outing, with its coy little sex jokes, editorializing dogs and huge frosted cakes always on the move, rings true. (Capsule review.)
  • God Grew Tired Of Us

  • The Muckle Man

    I don't know whether The Muckle Man has been workshopped too much or not enough. I do think that what's onstage probably isn't what anyone had in mind.

  • Bug

    Everybody in Bug is really messed up and everything's really sick -- a typical Saturday night around my house.
  • Theater
  • Vinegar Tom
