    Dori Berinstein's fine documentary chronicles the production of four high-profile musicals during the 2003-'04 New York theater season, two of them hits (the family-friendly Wicked and the quirky adult puppet show Avenue Q) and two of them flops (Caroline, or Change, a drama about black life in the south, and Taboo, Boy George's memoir of gay club culture in 80s London). more...

  • Superstar in a Housedress

    “Jackie is just speeding away / Thought she was James Dean for a day,” sang Lou Reed in “Walk on the Wild Side.” But writer-performer Jackie Curtis, who died of a drug overdose in 1985, was more than some androgynous speed freak; his satiric, sexually ambivalent take on popular culture influenced John Waters, David Bowie, Bette Midler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. more...
