Theatre Above the Law presents three Thornton Wilder one-acts about how children relate to grown-ups. Wizened babies struggle to express complex thoughts while their adult caretakers can't share simple ones, children playact themselves into understanding how much they need their parents, and teenagers realize the impossibility of walking in another's shoes. This superb production moves nimbly from humor to heartbreak with spartan means, and the excellent cast juggle multiple roles effortlessly. Using little more than a patch of AstroTurf and a few chairs, they evoke entire worlds. This is likely the best storefront play I've seen all year. Tony Lawry directed. —Dmitry Samarov
