The Computerization of Alex Kent Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Mondays, Tuesdays. Continues through June 28 2011

Unable to find a single resource for treating his Internet addiction (apparently that's the one thing he won't google), Alex Kent dies and goes to the pearly gates. Lucky for him, Saint Peter takes pity and sends Alex back in time to mend his life--on the condition that he stay offline. Playwright Rex Mitchell neglects any real discussion of vice or addiction--save for a brief porn mention, it's not clear what Alex is up to online--and opts instead for fuzzy supernatural dramatics. This weak, bizarrely cast cautionary tale from Gold Crown Productions does for the Web what Reefer Madness inadvertently did for weed. --Dan Jakes

Price: $12-$15
