'Modern Terrorism' Imagine "Homeland" with a laugh track. You cannot help but admire the nerve of playwright Jon Kern (a writer for "The Simpsons") in tackling such intensely emotional and divisive material, and fleshing out so vividly the three characters who, in their sparsely furnished Brooklyn apartment, nonchalantly plan to rain destruction on a Manhattan landmark. But even 12 years after 9/11, are we really ready to laugh at Muslim terrorists? Maybe. There's certainly fun to be had with the sitcom-worthy portion of the dialogue and antics, starting with the play-opening, bombs-in-the-briefs scene.

Today is the 24th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, but beyond that, current events have granted a sad and unanticipated timeliness to the Vagabond Players' production of "Keely and Du," a play about abortion rights.Yet even the shocking coincidence of last week's bombing of an Atlanta abortion clinic cannot humanize a script that is more a polemic than a play. Nor do the strong performances of director Tony Gallahan's polished cast compensate for this shortcoming.

All right, Doug McGrath, you're the cock of the walk, right?"Er," says Doug McGrath, "it's more like I'm the chicken of the alley."Always with the funny, eh, McGrath?Yes, indeed. And that's why Doug McGrath, a New York free-lance writer who is mostly known for "The Flapjack File," a satirical account of the Clinton White House in the New Republic, finds himself in the odd role of an Oscar nominee. McGrath has been co-nominated with Woody Allen for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for "Bullets Over Broadway," one of seven surprise nominations the Allen film received.
