Stage

With the droopy-eyed, slack-jawed earnestness of a puppy dog, Matthew Rozen perfectly embodies the Gen X refugee. Emilie Talbot manages to balance her supernatural arrogance with sympathy and a streak of regret about her role as universal serial murderer. Routhier choreographs the remaining five actors in multiple roles in performances that range from tepid to dazzling. Especially memorable are Ciccarone's manic Sanity and brusque Service, Cooley's dandified Knowledge and cockney-hard Blame, Rothrock's brutal Control, and Melanie Sliwka's languorous Beauty. Despite her inspired interpretation of the slinky, nervous Angst, Sheehan struggled with her mock-German accent, often rendering her speeches uncomprehensible over the blaring disco music.
