Theater review: 'Crimes of the Heart' mixes tragedy and hilarity at UWS
Novelist Pat Conroy once wrote, "All Southern literature can be summed up in these words: 'On the night the hogs ate Willie, Mama died when she heard what Daddy did to Sister.'" Playwright Beth Henley's Pulitzer Prize-winning black comedy "Crimes of the Heart," onstage at UWS, follows...

Theater Review: Classic comedy charmingly captures a simpler time
