Cold Cold Feet

There's slapstick in Tony Fiorentino's farce about a groom getting cold feet, but most of the comedy stems from escalating misunderstandings and absurd lies, including the groom's attempts to hide some strippers from sister, mom, priest, and fiancee. The script's tight and based on honest observations, but some of the cast members are shrill, and June Eubanks's staging is occasionally pointless. But Andrew Pond gives the show momentum as the best man who's desperately trying to cover for his brother's last-minute doubts, Kate Harris is fun as the groom's mother, and Erica Bethe earns the happy ending as the feisty bride to be. Through 8/13: Thu-Fri 8 PM, Sat 3 and 8 PM, Sun 3 PM, Theatre Building Chicago, 1225 W. Belmont, 773-327-5252, $25.
