When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 24 2014
Price: $20, $15 for students and seniors
The title characters of this 75-minute two-hander by New York playwright Daniel Talbott are guys in their mid-20s, wealthy sons of good families and best friends since boyhood. Mike, straight, is about to marry his live-in girlfriend; Seth, gay, is in the process of breaking up with his unfaithful lover. The young men share a beer-fueled middle-of-the-night conversation that's sometimes touching, sometimes thought provoking, and sometimes just plain tedious. Derek Garza (Mike) and Michael Manocchio (Seth) deliver honest, well-modulated performances under Adam Webster's emotionally detailed direction, but the confessional soul baring sometimes flounders under the weight of the characters' shallow self-absorption. —Albert Williams
