Planet Karate | Annoyance Theatre | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Fridays. Continues through June 17 2011
Price: $15
On a post-apocalyptic earth where martial arts are the only law and belt color determines social standing, a lowly white-belt is commanded to defeat two evil overlords hell-bent on wiping out all worthy competition. Ryan McDermott has written a decent send-up of quest narratives, and David Rocco Facchini's production for Annoyance Theatre features some entertaining fight sequences--including one that unfolds on notepads, demonstrating Annoyance's knack for intelligently executed silliness. But the pace dawdles, and too many onstage giggles and character breaks compromise the cast's strong suit: steely dedication to absurd material. --Dan Jakes
