The Tony Awards are a time for taking stock, but let’s not put an undue burden on this year’s nominations. To sort out the enigma of the 2014-15 Broadway season would require dusting off Alan Turing’s machine.

Anna Deavere Smith, whose documentary theater offerings have investigated the Rodney King riots ("Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992") and the crisis in U.S. healthcare ("Let Me Down Easy"), among other societal flash points, has been hard at work on a new piece on the school-to-prison pipeline in poor minority communities.

As Thomas Cromwell, the Machiavellian mastermind behind Henry VIII, Ben Miles surveys the comings and goings at court with a watchful reserve that shifts imperceptibly into murderous stealth.

My conversation with Irish playwright Conor McPherson -- on writing, drinking, Beckett and the value of kindness  
No one would accuse Conor McPherson of going soft. As Ireland's preeminent playwright, he is renowned for his bruising, binge-drinking, invective-spewing immorality tales.

My review of "A Delicate Balance": A gorgeous production, still coalescing http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-a-delicate-balance-review-glenn-close-20141121-column.html
The setting for Edward Albee's "A Delicate Balance" is "the living room of a large and well-appointed suburban home," and scenic designer Santo Loquasto has conjured the scene so sumptuously at Broadway's Golden Theatre that you can practically hear the tennis balls being hit at the country club down the road.

My conversation with the man behind Dame Edna, Barry Humphries -- not sure who is funnier! 
http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-ca-dame-edna-20150125-column.html#page=1
Barry Humphries sat at a table overlooking the pool of his Beverly Hills hotel and blew his nose. He had just arrived from his home in London and was suffering with a common cold — something it's hard to imagine ever getting the better of his imperious (and better known) alter ego, Dame Edna.

E. O. Wilson challenges the humanities to stop being so anthropocentric. Here's why artists need to listen:
http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/theater/la-et-cm-ca-mcnulty-essay-20141228-column.html#page=1
In his most recent book, "The Meaning of Human Existence," Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson challenges the humanities to stop being in effect so darn man-crazy.

Whenever Mike Nichols worked in the theater, it was inevitably an event, the focal point of the season — the show you simply had to get tickets to or be left in the conversational cold.
