Bloomington Playwrights Project, Bloomington, IN
Theatre on the Square: Main Stage. It's an elaborate party
game: the performers (three men, three women) reel off a "play" – a
sketch, really – for each of the last 30 years in whatever order the
audience calls for. The result is a laugh-filled kaleidoscope of pop culture
since 1980, from Baby Jessica to Monica and beyond. The performers make up in
energy and good humor what they lack in range. A majority of pieces steer clear
of politics; Reagan, teflon
as always, manages never to make an appearance.
