THE DYBBUK — Jewish legend and mysticism in a brilliantly executed production at the tiny Neighborhood Playhouse.

BRIDE OF THE LAMB — Alice Brady in a stirring, shocking play about the mixture of religion and sex.

YOUNG WOODLEY — Glenn Hunter and an adept troupe discussing an English schoolboy's earliest love affair.
