Invisible World Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through July 26 2014

On opening night at Annoyance Theatre's sophisticated new space, founder Mick Napier touted the organization's "young and subversive" reputation. But Invisible World (the title is a metaphor for sketch comedy) seems to hail from the days before the Internet; a recurring school-shooting joke is the sole plot point in two hours of unrelated skits that proceed as if no one's never heard of Reddit, much less 4chan. Some of these skits were terrific in a deliciously terrible kind of way—I'm looking at you, subtlest dead baby joke ever. It was clear the cast spent a lot of time working on this show, but it seems simmering so long on the stovetop had detrimental effects: the performers' attitude was oddly defensive, diffident and stiff. —Jena Cutie
