Actually, on some level, it applies to both of them, and their friends and family as well – everyone in LIAR has secrets – but there is a central issue in the drama created by Harry Williams & Jack Williams (who also created […]Read On »

Now, going into the 2014-2015 season, what new shows do we have to look forward to and what are their […]Read On »

The atmosphere is deliberately drive-in theatre, with couches decorated to look like car seats and popcorn and soda stations (as well as regular drive-in dinner fare). Hirsch was nominated for an Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in ORDINARY PEOPLE, […]Read On »
