The Greatest One Man Show of All Time: An Ensemble Piece New Review (Theater and Comedy) Image

When: Wednesdays. Continues through July 19 2017

Dylan Doetch’s one-man show is actually a show about several Dylans, each a clone of the original. So the joke, of course, is that this hour-long romp isn’t about one man at all. The dodge is creative, less so the gags, which feel awfully familiar. What starts as an autobiographical story about moving to the big city turns into a James Bond-like thriller as a rogue clone goes full world-domination-mode, threatening to kill its host's body and take over the show altogether. Meanwhile, time travel makes its way into the mix, and it all happens via the space-time continuum with one notable cameo: Austin Powers meets Back to the Future? Doetch is a clever writer, and he seems to revel in pop culture. It’s all in good fun, but the clone conceit gets old as it's replicated again and again. —Matt de la Peña
