Closer Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through March 5 2011

Comprising two toxic acts full of gutter sex talk, Closer is definitely not Valentine's Day date material. Patrick Marber's 1997 portrait of serially cheating Londoners argues that people confuse love with sex, that they seldom fall equally or simultaneously for each other--and, more to the point, that hate comes easier and stays longer than adoration. But Marber's shock effects aren't what they used to be. His emotional roller coaster creaks now where it used to jolt, and though Rob Cramer's cast stay on top of things, scene changes in this AstonRep Theatre production deplete the energy still further. --Lawrence Bommer

Price: $12-$15
