THE PLAY: The story starts with a nerdy physicist who falls for an intern. Act Two reverses the timeline back to the beginning, with variations in destiny caused by one decision.

 

THE PRODUCTION: This is a basic geometry love triangle cluttered with fluid time and quantum mechanics. The cast basically does fine, although Matt Hackman’s overly neurotic lead is distractingly extreme. Elliot Eisenberg adds a few moments of humorous personality. Scott Bergman’s expansive structure provides an attractive modern environment and director Melissa Rayford has made effective use of the space. David White’s lighting decisions sometime seem illogical (especially the green LEDs), although there is one dazzling effect. Even with all that’s positive about this production, the play’s flat, repetitive dialogue prevents it from being as fascinating as the concept.

 

THE POINT: Other than the set, this mild production never rises above the listless script.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
