Wild The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through July 1 2012

Peter and Bobby have been together for four years. They work in finance and wear slim-fit clothing. Peter gets drunk and fucks a random woman he meets at a bar. Bobby gets pissy and starts fucking his intern. Peter gets scared and starts fucking an egghead hunk. Peter and Bobby wonder whether love is real. If you’re 14 or Rick Santorum you may find this story "wild," but grown-ups are likely to be bored silly by Crystal Skillman's labored effort to turn a speed bump in a generic relationship into Dostoyevsky. Still, impressive performances abound in this Kid Brooklyn Productions premiere even as director Evan Caccioppoli works overtime to make Skillman's psychobabble ("love is giving") sound like the wisdom of the ages. —Justin Hayford
