Predator: The Musical Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through July 7 2012

This cheeky, intelligent adaptation of the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger action vehicle, Predator, has a lot going for it. David Krump, William Stobb, and Will Bulka's script picks up on the strong characters and lightning pacing that make the movie great while cleverly ribbing its thin plot and faulty logic. But after intermission the show becomes a survival mission of its own—a slog through clumsy fight scenes and back-to-back musical numbers. If there's a reason not to radio for an extraction, it's the climactic revelation of Glenese Hand's terrific creature effects. —Keith Griffith

Price: $20-$25
