Skooled: A Study in Circus Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through March 23 2013

This 90-minute production is a fascinating theatrical experiment—a wild hybrid made up of unequal parts physical comedy, acrobatics, comic dance, and eccentric musical acts. It's also a highly entertaining children's show, performed by an ensemble mixing gifted young student artists (preteens on up) with a handful of adult performers. Skooled crackles with energy as the cast invent new uses for familiar theatrical forms. Case in point: anybody who thinks all mime consists of bad imitations of Marcel Marceau should see Dean Evans's virtuoso turn. —Jack Helbig

Price: $15-$20
