Are You for Real? A Comedy Show About People Who Are Full of Shit Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays. Continues through May 1 2009

Sound issues hampered this sketch revue when I saw it, but a glitchless performance wouldn't have made it any more engaging. Though refreshingly diverse, the American Dreams ensemble never gels, resulting in lackluster bits. Writer-performer Hope Martinez seemed the most comfortable onstage, and even she tightened up as Britney Spears in the closer. Her material--a woman nervously anticipating a man's come-ons, Scientology's absurdities, a couple dealing with one member's rock star behavior--never finds the cleverness or horseplay it needs to hit the nail on the head. --Ryan Hubbard

Price: $5-$10
