Life During School Time Member Picks New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through June 26 2011

A decade has passed since I was a student in a middle-school classroom. The bits I remember--gym tests, valentines, aimless dread--suggest that grade-school anxieties are no different from the twenty-something kind, and the cast of Gorilla Tango's by-kids-for-kids show supply proof. Their songs are all about unrequited crushes, identity confusion, and alienation. Anthony Whitaker's production works because of the kids' bravado. They don't flinch at singing a cappella or tremble before an audience consisting of complete strangers and camera phone-wielding parents. --Dan Jakes
