It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Love Story The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays. Continues through June 23 2010

It's a mess. Alyse Castillo's opposites-attract romantic comedy lasts less than 45 minutes but feels much longer. Edwin is an IT guy who moonlights as a superhero called the Striker. He falls for sexy thief Mia, but how can they trust each other enough to, um, unmask their true feelings when Mia's conniving boss has assigned her to steal a giant diamond entrusted to the Striker's care? Extraneous characters; witless, repetitive dialogue; and Phil Baranski's shambling direction only add to the problems of this undercooked show. Though a couple of cast members show potential comic chops, it's to no avail. --Kerry Reid
