Dates From Hell Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through July 6 2013

In 90 minutes of flawless sketch comedy, six actors play characters of all ages and maturity levels who just want to know what love is. The process of answering that question is not always pretty: Sometimes "love" takes Xanax, or wears underwear that's way too flashy. Love can end suddenly with tragedy, or a fumbled doorstep kiss. No matter the scene, the vivacious cast and sharp writing keep Dates From Hell funny and fast-paced throughout. This is the first production in Redtwist Theatre's new "Dark Red" series of late-night comedy shows; it's also the first of seven installments in playwright Scott Woldman's "Luv Cycle." I have no idea if subsequent productions will match this one. All I can say is that I had a really good time tonight, and I'd like to do this again sometime. —Hannah Gold
