The TomKat Project The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays. Continues through May 29 2013

If any anecdote sounds too incredible to be true in this ambitious and thoroughly entertaining examination of the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes marital saga, writer Brandon Ogborn is here to clarify: a sign reading "This is VERBATIM dialogue" is held up during some particularly implausible scenes, which in addition to the titular pair may involve Scientology honcho David Miscavige, Holmes's family, Oprah, or any of about 50 others. Director Elly Green's keen and restrained troupe—Walt Delaney, in particular, nails Cruise's enigmatic, aloof energy—uses both specificity and irreverence to sift meaning from tabloid fragments and express them as pop-culture writers already know they should be: high theater of the absurd. —Dan Jakes
