As the numeral in the title suggests, this show from a company called Trip is as much about mathematics as it is about sex. Out of a loose aggregation of millennials emerge six integers, er, individuals--three men and three women--who pair off, forming the following sets: a man and a man, a woman and a woman, and a woman and a man. Each set is put through the same series of romantic operations, including infatuation, hot sex, love, and a disturbing revelation at a dinner party. At the end we see how they add up. The authors throw in some meta-theatrical gestures--coyly mixing life with art, actors with audience members--and the ensemble are mostly very charming. But it's hard to shake the sense that we're watching permutations as opposed to people. --Tony Adler
