"Mary Stuart" and "Exit the King"

 

Don't miss a terrific review of two hot shows on Broadway with explicit and implicit religious themes--Freidrich Schiller's old chestnut "Mary Stuart," brought to exciting new life by Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter; and Eugene Ionesco's "Exit the King," with Geoffrey Rush, Susan Sarandon and Lauren Ambrose.  The double review comes from our theater reviewer Rob Weinert-Kendt, a new addition to America.  Rob is an arts journalist based in Brooklyn who has written for The New York Times and TimeOut New York. He writes the blog "The Wicked Stage."
