If high schoolers were universally quick to offer one another emotional support, spoke primarily in well-organized paragraphs, and were given to philosophizing ("The best thing about being young is being envied"), Stephen Karam's tale of three misfit, sex-addled teens conspiring to expose their pedophile teacher might possess a shred of credibility. But they don't, and it doesn't. The show was a hit for American Theater Company in 2008 despite tortured plotting, insubstantial musical numbers, and extended diddling with heavyweight issues like abortion, underage sex, and gay conversion therapy. Perhaps the play would pack a punch as a black comedy, but with an indistinct tone and two-note performances, director PJ Paparelli's remount is a hollow exercise. —Justin Hayford $38-$43
Unlike its all-female sister production, Late Night Tit-Bits, this all-male combination improv and strip show features no burlesque. In fact, it's a stretch to say the guys even do striptease. Nonchalantly removing one piece of clothing at a time over the course of several quick, usually nonsexual two-person scenes, they get down to bare buns as unseductively as possible. Yet they're not going for man-boob or tighty-whitey laughs, either. Though these guys aren't the Chippendales, they're in pretty good shape, and a few are downright hunkish. The result is an awkward situation where the nakedness and comedy distract from each other, discouraging us from fully enjoying either one. --Ryan Hubbard $7
