Midlife Joyride 

When: Saturdays. Continues through Sept. 18 2010
Price: $15
Everybody in the cast of this sketch comedy show about the foibles of middle age looks to be pushing 50. That shouldn't be surprising, but in our youth-centric theater scene it's a singular oddity. (By contrast, the stars of Cougars! The Musical--about near-geriatric women--were playing several decades above their actual years.) Watching boomers make sport of issues that traumatize them as the onset of physical decay meets the last gasp of youthful optimism might've made for insightful comedy. But Eric Cowgill's skits tend to meander, and most of the performers exhibit the kind of diddling fussiness fatal to comic timing. --Justin Hayford
