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

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 2 2010

Armageddon never seems more than a cartoony prospect in William Donnelly's spoof of the retro-Mayan 2012 crowd and their possibly self-fulfilling prophecies of doom. But the infidelity, jealousy, sibling rivalry, and emotional homelessness that preoccupy eight richly confused characters come off convincingly. And the cast of Timothy Bambara's Point of Contention production play the small stuff so well that the big picture matters even less. Silly distractions like an explanation of the "yes philosophy" just get in the way. --Lawrence Bommer

Price: $12-$15
