Life isn't a linear progression. If you need evidence, look no further than this smart, moving one-man show from Luis Alfaro. The story centers on a journey back to Alfaro’s southern-California hometown, where he’s met with a flood of memories while tending to his sickly father. Much of this hour-long saga is powered by raw emotion, informed by self-inflicted wounds and a troubled past. But a clever gimmick helps elevate it: the program doubles as a hymnal, and the audience/congregation is prompted to sing. By playing preacher, Alfaro seems intent on soliciting a bit of redemption, even if it’s done with a healthy dose of irony. —Matt de la Peña
