Aida Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through May 29 2011

Virtuoso triple threats pack Jim Corti's revival of the Disney pop musical based on Verdi's classic opera. But their talents can't disguise a forgettable score and a book that makes a story of forbidden love about as exciting as the minutes of a student council meeting. Stephanie Umoh and Jared Zirilli generate some heat as the Nubian princess and Egyptian military hero at the center of the story. Too bad they and the rest of Corti's fine cast have to work so hard to give this show any drama. --Jack Helbig

Price: $35-$46
