A celebration of the theater that tends to drag the moment it's out of drag.

As drama, Stage Beauty is both timorous and ungainly, words that might also describe Ms. Danes's performance.
Beauty is about two-thirds the serious-edged romp it would like to be, which still leaves a lot of room for tony fun.
Claire Danes is as fresh as running water in this role, exhibiting the clarity and directness that has become her strength; her characters tend to know who they are, and why.
Sly and witty.
This skillfully acted, handsomely crafted frock piece toys cleverly with gender confusion and sexual identity.
A rich, shining valentine to the British theater and the eternal joys of Shakespeare,
Those who thought "Shakespeare In Love" was as good as it gets in intelligent costume romantic comedy will find that director Richard Eyre and writer Jeffrey Hatcher have taken the form to a higher level.
