Good Time Gang and the Katydids Member Picks Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Thursdays. Continues through March 24 2011

This sketch double bill is lively, original fun from start to finish. Good Time Gang lead off with We're Not Friends, a physical and interactive show highlighted by a recurring chase scene that keeps Gang members Bret Elam, Josh Logan, and Gary Richardson diving and lurching across the stage. Be sure to listen to instructions or the trio may give you a disciplinary spritz from a spray bottle. The Katydids show, Nice to Meet You, I Love You, offers fresh takes on marriage-obsessed Valley girls and the mayoral race. Cate Freedman is hilariously vapid as a high-school valedictorian sending her classmates off into the world with rolled eyes. Video bits cleverly spoof political campaign ads and ask whether a candidate can love animals a bit too much. --Marissa Oberlander
