Stage Raw: Labor Theater

This week's NEW THEATER REVIEWS are embedded within the current COMPREHENSIVE THEATER LISTINGS; Also,  see this THEATER FEATURE on the principal creators of the Wooster Group's sci-fi opera, La Didone coming to REDCAT

The Tony Awards are this Sunday, being broadcast 8 p.m. on CBS, Eastern and Pacific Time. Don't look for any of the designer or choreography noms to be broadcast; they're just not interesting enough for the Network.
