  • Review: Little drama in 'Act One'; still, there's some good theater

    The New York theater piece based on playwright Moss Hart's memoir hasn't been distilled into a workable dramatic form. But Tony Shalhoub's performance is richly rewarding. Whenever a thespian, young or old, needs some inspiration, I always prescribe the same two books: "The Mystic in the Theatre: Eleonora Duse" by Eva Le Gallienne and "Act One" by Moss Hart.
