The show’s savage title, with its perhaps unintentional echoing of Peter Weiss’s masterpiece The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade, promises more than director David McGrath and his fellow writers (Eric Coleman, Jamie Quinones, Dave Kwitkowski) can deliver. What we get is 90 minutes of lame material, not even as good as the stuff you see on TV, performed without energy or urgency or wit. The show does contain some sparks of life. Jenny Miller delivers a dead-on impersonation of Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Meir Steinberg kills as the World’s Angriest Magician. Most of the time, though, the proceedings creep along at a petty pace from joke to joke to the last syllable of recorded time. —Jack Helbig
