Kink Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through July 24 2010

In this ensemble-written musical directed by Annoyance mainstay Rebecca Sohn, three women play every character in a small suburban town where sex is taboo but constantly on the minds of its residents. The conceit works when the cast opt for outrageous physical humor, like oral sex lessons on a blow-up doll. But the writing lacks balls. We rarely see the ramifications of the repression people keep talking about. And the songs, though catchy, do little to fill in the holes. When a secret dominatrix belts that getting her panties-wearing husband off "makes my skin crawl," and the issue is immediately dropped, you wish the show would grow a pair. --Steve Heisler

Price: $15
