Saturday Super Show Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 2 2013

With an ensemble of players choosen by Jason Chin from iO's house teams, performing for the first time together the night I saw them, this fully improvised late-night set shows plenty of promise. The performers clearly understand the basics—they agree, they don't hot-dog, they listen to and care about each other—and a few even managed moments of pure inspiration (notably the laconic John Thibodeaux and the lunatic Eleise Moore). But overall this energetic group still play like puppies, sometimes winning laughs with the frantic way they fall over each other, sometimes just gracelessly falling over in their eagerness to please. But there's still time for these young performers to settle down, earn their chops, and compete for best in show. —Jack Helbig
