Surely there are no other Sheena Easton-Condoleezza Rice fans like monologuist Michael Moore: he fawns over them equally, creating flourishing fantasies of what their lives must be like. The only thing unifying this evening of random personal anecdotes--Moore was a typical white trash kid who dreamed of becoming a musical-theater diva--is his enthusiasm for relaying them. And his campy approach suggests a retread: do we really need another solo comic performer who can't accept that the 80s are over? Still, Moore's infectious devotion, energy, and occasionally sparkling wit help gloss over the fact that his stories don't really warrant a one-man show. Through 11/3: Tue-Wed 8 PM. Stage Left Theatre, 3408 N. Sheffield, 773-459-8056. $14.99.
