Bri-Ko: All Silent. All Funny. The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 2 2011

Don't let their pink complexions fool you--Brian Posen, Brian Peterlin, and Tim Soszko clearly borrow from the Blue Man concept in these 75 minutes of generally hilarious physical comedy directed by Ann Boyd. Flying gumballs, lettuce, and marshmallows keep the comedy at a level all ages can appreciate as the trio skewer pretension and celebrate innocence in wordless sketches that mourn dead Christmas toys, for example, and spoof fine-dining rituals. Chelsea Warren's clean, attractive set yields welcome surprises, but that's not always true of the comedy: setups can be too methodical, and some bits are repetitious. With just a few more nuggets of comic business, this show would be the perfect return to the playpen. --Laura Molzahn
