How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 20 2009

A high-powered young marketing executive in London, Charlie works constantly, sleeps not at all, drinks to excess, owes money to bad people, embezzles, hallucinates, and willingly snorts cocaine off a wet toilet seat when the occasion demands. His mother just died, and he's been carrying her cremated remains to work with him in an urn. It's time to get a new life. In fact, it may be past time: as Charlie sets about committing pseudocide (engineering his disappearance and adoption of a new identity), he gets disturbing intimations that he may already be dead. Fin Kennedy's 2007 black comedy is whimsical, savage, and invigoratingly chaotic. Richard Cotovsky's production loses clarity at times, but gets where it needs to go on sharp performances by Carlo Lorenzo Garcia as Charlie, Kevin Stark as his mentor, and Kasia Januszewski in various roles. --Tony Adler
