Mothers and Sons -- Philadelphia Theatre Co. at Suzanne Roberts Theatre

Time, times, and generations provide separate perspectives on a number of subjects in Terrence McNally’s play, “Mothers and Sons.”

Katharine Gerard , nearing 70, if not there, and widowed, takes what might be called a traditional or conservative view on matters of lifestyle, particularly homosexuality, and about AIDS, from which her only child, Andre, died 20 years before “Mothers and Sons” takes place in 2010. 2,513 more words

A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur -- Shaw Festival -- Court House Theatre

“A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur” is a compact one-act that carries the emotional and theatrical heft of a full-length play. Written by Tennessee Williams after his prime, “Creve Coeur,” more than “Vieux Carr√©,” “Small Craft Warnings,”¬† “Clothes for a Summer Hotel,” or other Williams plays of the 1970s, recalls the poetry of the author’s masterpieces and his gift for vivid, intense characterization. 1,622 more words
