Big Ski Trip: A Cautionary Tale for Teen Youth The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Tuesdays. Continues through Jan. 24 2017

Pop culture references just old enough to have fallen out of public consciousness but not yet classic enough to carry much nostalgic authority ("Hello Moto!") have become a comedy trope so surefire and beloved among sketch groups I'm astounded no one has yet coined a term for it. That's the kind of joke executed left and right in this "very special episode"-inspired goof about a group of teenagers who get themselves into trouble by allowing their hormones to dictate their AOL Instant Messenger use over winter vacation. Unfortunately—unlike its more absurd, more musical predecessor, Skiing Is BelievingBig Ski Trip plays out mostly as a bunch of rake-effect gags that land hard. —Dan Jakes
