Before I give my weekly roundup of upcoming cultural events, I’m going to run down some of my favorite performances from the past year. On stage, I saw Lanford Wilson’s “Burn This!” starring Adam Driver and Keri Russell on Broadway. Driver in particular dominated that show and demonstrated that his theatrical chops are at least the equal of his movie chops, which of course stood out this year in Jim Jarmusch’s zombie flick, “The Dead Don’t Die” and Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story.” Apparently, Adam Driver also starred in some kind of outer space sci-fi caper film recently, but I know nothing about that. The other Broadway performance that stood out was a British revival of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal,” starring the phenomenal Zawe Ashton and an actor named Tom Hiddleston, who apparently everyone knows from his role in a series of superhero movies called “The Avengers.” I’ll just have to take your word for that.
