Cursed! The Musical The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays. Continues through Nov. 17 2011

I'm going to give away the ending of this thoroughly unfunny musical comedy, so if you think you might have to see it, stop reading. Here's what happens: A guy gets cursed and everyone he kisses dies. He decides to kill the woman who cursed him, even though there's no reason for him or us to think that this will solve anything. But it does! The production's earnestness takes it to Ed Wood-esque levels of disaster. Playwright Rob Speer gives us a Chicago as incoherent as his plot, bizarrely populated with a drawling hick sheriff and a citizenry that get outraged by eight apparently natural deaths over the course of a decade. —Keith Griffith

Price: $10
