Profound B.S.

Several short works create a thought-provoking blend.

Alexander Reshetniak directed Catastrophe with beautiful control. Todd Trudgeon's take on Red Cross and Cowboys #2 occasionally seemed a little rushed and frantic. And when a woman walks onto the stage to adjust the set -- since it's done while the audience watches -- she might want to do it with calm and authority rather than haste. A set change can enhance the experience of viewing theater rather than detract from it. And I do wish the program had told us about the Havel dedication.

But in an odd way, the omissions and raw edges, the sense of improvisation and even the cold of the Buntport auditorium become essential elements in a very intriguing evening of theater.
