A so-so satire

Brightness and darkness

Leah Piepgras’s intriguing “¡SuperVision!” at GRIN
Constellations of mirror ball clouds dangle from the ceiling on pink cords at the center of the room and slowly rotate and sparkle. You’re invited to peer though weird, lumpy crystal-telescope-things.

Profoundly silly

Burbage's entertaining 'Bald Soprano'
It’s been more than a half-century since Eugène Ionesco’s first play, The Bald Soprano , was written in a burst of splenetic post-WWII exasperation over the ludicrous behavior of his species.

Triumph and tragedy

Fighting the power

Punching the clock

RWU's 'The Receptionist'
We come into the world, we rub our eyes, we look around and squall, and we spend the rest of our lives trying to figure out why we had to bother.

'Very Providencey'

"Going Nowhere" showcases Brown alumni who stuck around
“World building” is an idea that percolates — perhaps unconsciously — through the visionary end of the Providence art scene.

Meeting of the minds

'Freud's Last Session' at 2nd Story
The knockout production avoids digressions and keeps the interplay punchy, leaving us reeling as well. Think ' Crossfire' on the History Channel.

Hard truths

Trinity Rep's stunning 'A Lie of the Mind'
No way we audience members are going to sit back contentedly while the self-deluded characters in Sam Shepard’s A Lie of the Mind are the only ones shaken up.

History lesson

Revealing transformations

New works by Dan Butler and Judith Klausner
Seeing Dan Butler’s drawings and prints, you can imagine him talking long rambling strolls around cities and whipping out his sketchbook here and there to jot down impressions of old street lamps and bridges and other brawny urban constructions of America from the Gilded Age to World War II.

The triumph of the will

The Wilbury Theatre Group gets to the heart and soul of 'Cabaret'
Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we barely survive fascist takeover. That wasn’t exactly the motto of 1931 Berlin, but it might as well have been.

Unblurring the lines

An unsettling 'Blackbird' at the Gamm
