Thee Trinity The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 1 2016

The “controversial” thrust of Thee Trinity, Polemic Theater’s painfully horrendous face plant of a debut, is that there are focus groups in the afterlife. “Jay” (Jesus Christ), “Holly” (the Holy Ghost), and “Lucy” (Lucifer) are having a kind of heavenly board meeting. To improve customer satisfaction for “corporeals” (read “Muggles”) on their journeys through heaven and hell, the empyreal board has summoned Albert Einstein, Oscar Wilde, and—from the pit of Hades, where he's continuously raped by 72 male virgins for eternity—Osama bin Laden. So much here is amiss (playwright Rick Roberts’s Wilde is an offensive sham) that the play isn’t so much a play as an interminable dad joke that isn’t funny. —Max Maller
