Fury Theatre and Badass Broads look to the female buccaneers of folk history for inspiration in this collection of biographical shorts. Even the most experienced artists struggle to make pirate tales look anything but goofy onstage, so it's little surprise that these two dozen or so students and recent graduates fare better with comedic and wall-breaking material, like Ian Michael James's irreverent Sadie the Goat. As a whole, it's a hodgepodge, but there's some inspired spear choreography and solid emceeing, and there's no denying the gusto and camaraderie of these fresh faces just getting their professional bearings. —Dan Jakes
