The competition is heating up for best performance by a robot in the New
York theater this season. For a while, it looked as if the automaton pretending
to be Matthew Broderick in the revival of "The Odd Couple" had a lock on the category. But
the bar has been raised by the real live — oops, skip the live — robots who are
so happily reciting the words of Henrik Ibsen in "Heddatron," the dopey and strangely moving gloss on "Hedda Gabler" by Les Freres Corbusier at the Here Arts Center in the South Village.
It may be a gimmick, but boy it's one that has my attention!
