When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through March 12 2016
Andrew Park's original musical for Quest Theatre Ensemble takes inspiration from Shakespeare's soliloquy breaking down the seven stages of life, and borrows from its cast's real-life stories as examples. Scott Lamps's music is too schlocky to resonate beyond pleasantness; I still left a blubbering mess—earnestly relayed life experiences about addiction, marriage, and loss cut through any of the softness. There's a genuine feeling of compassion throughout, and any of these monologues would hold up to the best episodes of This American Life.
