When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through March 31 2018

The Agency Theater Collective’s world premiere of Jack Schultz’s one-man show, directed by Cordie Nelson, is a powerful, intimate look at the intersection of love and addiction. The piece is framed around Schultz’s coffee habit, which developed as a coping mechanism after the heroin overdose of his older brother, Andrew. Pondering his late brother’s comment that the high of heroin made him forget how to be excited, Schultz dives into his own history with serial romance and relationships, lamenting, “I have leaned into love my whole live because I miss you.” Schultz propels the hour-long piece with a potent mix of humor, physicality, and in-your-face vulnerability. Sommer Austin opened with an art-history-class parody called “The Beer Bottle” on the night I attended. —Marissa Oberlander
