  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    Kirk Douglas played on Broadway as a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake.

He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the world series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. For one offense, the head nurse has him submit to shock treatment. The party is too horrid for her and she forces him to submit to a final correction a frontal lobotomy. Winner of the 2001 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Revival.

  • Cinema Tuesdays: The Thin Man

    At 80 years old, The Thin Man is a lot like my Nana: elegant, witty and very appreciative of a good martini. And like Nana, The Thin Man is delightful to this day. Most of this is due to the unparalleled chemistry between William Powell and Myrna Loy, who play Nick and Nora Charles; he, a San Francisco detective who “retired” after marrying; she, a wealthy socialite who matches her man in smarts and in drink. What mystery are they solving? Doesn’t matter. The fun’s in watching Nick and Nora trade gibes like they were Wimbledon opponents and then team up to turn their verbal acuity on some unsuspecting chump.
