World on Fire The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 11 2012

Rod Serling might've made something of the elements: a wealthy old megalomaniac, a time machine, 5,000 bad poems, a dutiful, lonely daughter, and a hapless young literary editor. But the folks behind this Rhinofest entry haven't a clue. What they do have is a flatfooted mess, bad in such a way that you can't even enjoy hating it. You just sit there wondering why you're sitting there. This isn’t a production—it's a 75-minute infliction. —Tony Adler

Price: $12-$15 or pay what you can
