At Long Wharf, Homer Puts On Wings

by Allan Appel | Aug 5, 2015 3:05 pm

Allan Appel Photo Not all journeys home have to involve ten years of hardship and imprisonment, fighting a cyclops, or fending off angry gods.

Extricating yourself from a toxic relationship, emerging from a nasty bullying episode, or just moving out of the nest into college can be journeys as daunting as traveling from the siege of Troy home to Ithaca.

Summer Cab Becomes Master Of Puppets

by Lucy Gellman | Jul 22, 2015 12:35 pm

Lucy Gellman Photo “I think I’m excited by every atom of it. It’s so very different to do a show that’s our project, our adaptation, our play, our writing. I get so connected to it,” said Andrej Visky, director of the Yale Cabaret‘s upcoming production of Faustus, as he described how what had begun as a long-term love affair with Christopher Marlowe’s play was now near completion. “I really hope that we are able to trick the audience the same way Mephistopheles tricks Faustus.”

Love Holds A Lamp — And Adah Rides A Horse

by Chris Arnott | Jul 14, 2015 4:28 pm

ANDREA H. BERMAN PHOTO Don’t let anybody tell you that Adah Isaacs Menken is obscure. She was one of the top-paid performers of her time, her popularity buoyed by scandals and rumors. She appeared nude — or appeared to appear nude — onstage, had numerous love affairs, and was of unusual ethnic heritage for a mainstream stage star in the late 19th century. (There were various claims that she was of Cuban, French, or Creole descent.) Her poetry collection Infelicia is still in print, and major biographies of her tend to come out every decade or so. She has more books written about her than a lot of U.S. presidents. The only thing that might make her more popular these days would be if she were still performing — which would be sensational indeed, since she died in 1868 at the age of 33. Just like John Belushi, Sam Cooke, Carole Lombard, Chris Farley, Eva Peron, Eva Braun, Bon Scott of AC/DC, and Jesus Christ.
