Review: ‘M. Butterfly’ at Everyman Theatre

Though written 30 years ago, few contemporary plays speak so profoundly to America’s current situation in the world as does David Henry Hwang’s M. Butterfly, now playing at Baltimore’s Everyman Theatre.

Review: ‘Los Otros’ #2 at Everyman Theatre

Los Otros, after all, translates literally to “the others” and one must only turn […]
