The premise reads like a rejected game show pitch: the audience don headphones and listen in on an improvised phone conversation between two performers separated from each other by an onstage screen. But under Dexter Bullard's direction, a show that could've slipped into kitsch or avant-garde frippery instead stuns with its simple humanity. On opening night, actress Sue Gillan and performance artist Tyler Myers--the first in a rotating roster of participants--deftly wove a story about former lovers. The cheap headphones Bullard supplies are more than a gimmick, wrapping the show in a familiar analogue hum that adds intimacy. --Keith Griffith
