Kristen Studard's "unflattering vanity project" presents wacky, often hilarious characters with unique stories to tell. We meet Shirley, a video-blogging Girl Scout with an over-the-top sense of melodrama; a Hungry Hungry Hippo who's sick of eating little white balls; and multiple household objects just itching to sing their sorrows. Well structured and thoughtfully directed by Kate Duffy, this production is a fun vehicle for Studard's versatile comedy. Whether she's stuffing her face with marshmallows or bringing to life a flower's inner monologue, Studard's wit and excellent timing shine through. The show's best moments--such as a brief coming-of-age sketch featuring speaking roles for Studard's three outdated forms of identification--are improvised. --Marissa Oberlander
