We're Gonna Die New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Mondays. Continues through April 16 2018

Haven Theatre presents Young Jean Lee’s guileless monologue/indie-pop concert about learning a few of life’s lessons. Heartbreak, family illness, and the challenges of fitting in are addressed in an open-hearted if sometimes trite way. It’s hard to fault the performances or the sincere emotions behind these songs and stories, but it’s equally difficult to believe that anyone past middle school would be confronting some of these issues. How could the singer/narrator be old enough to talk about finding her first grey hair and have never thought about death before? The show would be ideal for a school assembly; grown-ups might be better off seeking therapy. Josh Sobel directed. —Dmitry Samarov
