Ladies Who Lunch

There's little reason to choose this sketch-comedy revue out of the many mediocre shows by recent or current improv students. Performed by four women who play slight variations on the same characters in each scene, this 45-minute batch of dull, unfocused, unoriginal sketches drew chuckles only during an interpretive dance to a Bette Midler song. It's disappointing enough to hear about dumb actresses trying to lose weight and crude guys trying to get a date. It's even worse to see an all-female quartet perform a show so heavy with weak, stupid women.
