In The Evening, writer/director Richard Maxwell uses three actors, three musicians, and On the Boards' vast mainstage for a 50-minute exploration of familiar shapes and predictable patterns and what it feels like to break free.&nbs

Is she leading us to extinction or did she find a way out? Feb 22, 2015

by Sean Ryan

The Evening by Richard Maxwell | New York City Players brings to life a world of archetypes, mere shapes, like the signs that depict men and women’s bathrooms. A world lackluster of adornment, stripped of the acting shtick.

Spectacle, Specifically Anti-Spectacle Feb 20, 2015

by David Bucci

About ten years ago, I saw one of Richard Maxwell’s plays at PS122 in New York. On the sidewalk after the show, I remember my inscrutable playwriting professor proclaiming that Maxwell was the “East Village David Mamet.” As a fan of Maxwell’s work, I was defensive and dismissed the observation as downtown, back-handed snark.

Letting go Feb 20, 2015

by Taylor Westerlund

Letting go. Richard Maxwell has mastered the art of letting go. Of the preconceptions of what theater must be. Of what a script must look like. And of "how to" format a play. No wonder the New York City Players are doing so well on the other side of the States.

Thoughts on The Evening Feb 20, 2015

by Leah Erickson Webster

An audience gathered to see Richard Maxwell's The Evening at On the Boards last night, made up of what seemed like mostly artists- people who kept greeting each other, surprised to be at the same show on the same night. Signs were posted at the entrance which warned of the use of a smog machine, and an unloaded gun.

Familiarity Feb 20, 2015

by Joe Ngo

What could I possibly say about Richard Maxwell’s “The Evening” that Mr. Maxwell, and others on this blog, haven’t already stated in much more eloquent terms?

Not much.

Cineastas Review Feb 2, 2015

by Hanako O'Leary

I went to see Cineastas because I wanted to get away from the Superbowl. It sounded like the opposite of a Superbowl party. A foreign performance about the creative process presented in a theater known for showing experimental performance art.

Step Inside the Camera Obscura: Mariano Pensotti’s Cineastas Feb 1, 2015

by Jay Kuehner

Standing on a typically cobbled San Telmo street corner in Buenos Aires, I unintentionally stumble upon Bar Sur, the milonga eternalized on screen to quite ambient effect by the presence of a careening Ho Po-Wing (Leslie Cheung) in Wong Kar-Wai’s Happy Together.
