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

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 16 2011

If the four struggling young artists at the center of this Slingshot Productions premiere were to spend as much time working on their craft as they do lamenting their stalled careers, they might actually achieve the success to which they feel so entitled. But that would be asking too much from this whiny bunch. One throws a drunken tantrum in response to a party guest's criticism, another jumps to thoughts of suicide at the notion of having to go to work. Missing an opportunity for satire, playwright Wren Graves frames the plight of his insufferable martyrs as high tragedy. It isn't. --Dan Jakes
