When it works, this Salsation show mines humor from the economy, race, gender, dating, family relations, and, yes, even sexting. But when it doesn't--as in the played-out what- if-(historical figure)-had-a-twitter-account bit--you get the feeling the troupe stopped revising their material a draft or two too soon. Saying "Michele Bachmann" and laughing hysterically isn't exactly sticking it to her in a creative way. And closing the show with an improvised telenovela that doesn't come close to exploiting a form that's begging to be parodied leaves a lingering aftertaste of wasted opportunity. --Brian Costello
