Chicago Slam Works' requiem for the millennial dream starts with yearbook quotes and high school reminiscences that set up this evening of whimsical yet serious-minded depictions of formative experiences on both sides of graduation divide—a format that could easily be sappy and tedious in the wrong hands but is crisp and engrossing here. There are weak spots where the cast get conceited about their youthful feelings and aspirations, but it's hard to object when unrealistic expectations and clueless egotism are so symptomatic of the millennial predicament. On some level I'm just thankful I'm young enough to find this material cathartic. —Jena Cutie
