This 80-minute rock musical revue, featuring a five-piece band and a cast full of singer/dancer/actors, follows one man's trip through a digital universe in search of a woman he's become infatuated with. Adapted from an album by Striding Lion and packed with terrific choreography by Allison Kurtz, the piece at its best resembles a series of live-action music videos. Sadly, these inspired moments are all but lost in a messy, muddy, highly fragmented, and unfocused production, hamstrung by a weak story line and undeveloped characters. Even the hero is a cipher. Worse still, the show wastes a rich premise: the many ways in which our emotional lives have been changed--some would say damaged--by addictive online communities like Facebook and Second Life. --Jack Helbig
