Nudity is the theme for this year’s spring one-act festival at Stage 773. Previous fests have addressed less loaded subjects—Halloween, Chekhov. But fearless actors will rise to any occasion. The veteran Organic Theater Company gives us the futuristic unveiling of a Greta Garbo robot (the “Garbot”) that, in keeping with the Garbo mystique, lies in bed naked refusing to go onstage. Right Brain Project and the Ruckus explore modern intimacy from the opposite end of the spectrum, showcasing the fleshly sides of a virginal wedding night and a small-town love triangle, respectively. Hobo Junction Productions' contribution ecstatically reminds us that “private dick,” meaning private detective, can also be a sexual pun. And while the night isn't a competition, if it were, the Living Canvas's gorgeous, sensuous color-projection piece Cathedrals would win handily. —Max Maller
