Boasts plenty of verbal wit, clever running jokes, and hilarious physical comedy. But underneath the fun is a serious concern: the anxiety generated by extraordinary political, technological, economic, and cultural change. A key theme of several sketches is the dehumanization that accompanies instant communication. Under Jim Carlson's fast-paced direction, however, the ensemble's communication with one another and the audience is lively and personal. (AW). Free improv sets follow shows Tue-Thu 10 PM, late Sat 1 AM, and Sun 9 PM

Price: $20-$25
