By Charles Paolino
 
“Midwives” is a story with a sharp knife, lots of blood, a death, and a criminal trial—but no villain. Chris Bohjalian’s play, in its world premiere at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick through February 16, is not about evildoers but rather about a woman going about her business when something goes off the rails.

Photos from "Pygmalion" at Black Box PAC
 
(ENGLEWOOD, NJ) -- After a stunning opening weekend, there are just two weekends left to catch this new production of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion at Black Box Performing Arts Center. Pygmalion is the play that inspired the hit Broadway musical My Fair Lady, but in this version Eliza Doolittle is nobody’s lady. This immersive production gives audiences a vibrant look at Henry Higgins’ wild experiment.
