War in Pieces Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Sundays. Continues through March 7 2010

Girl and Guy may be in love. They go to a bar. Guy ignores Girl, Girl has too many Jaeger bombs, sticks tongue down stranger's throat. Relationship over. The story seems simple until it's dissected in Angela Jo's overwrought one-act. First Girl and Guy recount their own versions, traveling through each stage of their grief with alternating bouts of anger and unbridled melodrama. Then Bartender steps in to provide some much needed clarity. As she wisely remarks over a lemon twist, "It takes one bomb to start a war." --Marissa Oberlander
