(Maplewood, NJ) -- After its summer hiatus, The Theater Project comes roaring back to life with Three Plays in Three Weeks, an entire season of entertainment delivered in less than one month. The professional theater company at the Burgdorff Center in Maplewood allows theatergoers to experience a mini theater season over three weekends -- and save money if they buy a three play package for $45. Artistic Director Mark Spina said, “By offering three different plays, we give new patrons a menu of choices, and create an opportunity to see our current fans more often – which is always a pleasure.” The shows will run Sept 24 - Oct 18, Thursdays through Sundays, at the Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts, 10 Durand Road, Maplewood, NJ.

With his last movie, While We’re Young, barely out of cinemas, we already have Noah Baumbach’s latest effort, yet another New York set comedy drama that owes more than a little to Woody Allen. Though I enjoyed While We’re Young, I expressed my disappointment at the sidelining of the characters played by Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried, who amounted to little more than convenient plot devices designed to cause conflict between the film’s male protagonists. No such accusations can be levelled at Baumbach’s rapidly turned around Mistress America; the ladies are front and center here, with Baumbach’s other half Greta Gerwig sharing writing duties....
