My Kinda Town The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through March 10 2012

Tony, a tightly wound Chicago actor, has landed himself the role that could be his ticket to Broadway. But he worries that his best friend and roommate, slacker playwright Drew, is holding him back. Drew has a tendency to drag Tony into zany predicaments, as when he tries to get out of a date by telling his smitten female acquaintance that Tony is his boyfriend. Brian Blankenship's script lurches from heartwarming buddy comedy to outrageous farce, occasionally accommodating dark humor and sexual shenanigans involving a giant dildo. With all the lane changes, though, a coherent plot never gets going, and the cast of this Nothing Special Productions show is left looking lost and frantic. —Zac Thompson
