The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore
Roundabout skims the cream off this 1963 Tennessee Williams flop in a haunting revival starring the inimitable Olympia Dukakis as Flora Goforth, a dying Southern woman dictating her memoirs in Italy. Mad Men’s Darren Pettie shows off his many assets as a parasitic poet who also kisses Flora’s gossipy friend, Witch of Capri, deliciously played by out actor Edward Hibbert as an homage to Noël Coward in the ’68 film version, Boom!
Laura Pels Theatre, through April 3.
Because I put it on my vision board, CollaborationTown’s stunning self-help satire has returned after winning a 2010 FringeNYC Award for Best Play. Directed by Lee Sunday Evans and created by TJ Witham with its three actors, Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell, Jordan Seavey, and Boo Killebrew, the gay-inclusive “seminar” culminates with moving second-person “how to” monologues about coming out, navigating heartbreak, and moving on.
Laurie Beechman Theatre, through February 16.
