The Laura on Laura Comeback Tour 

When: Thursdays. Continues through May 20 2010
Price: $12
Laura McKenzie and Laura Grey play two first-grade teachers so worn down by the world around them that they don leather outfits, adorn themselves with flashing Christmas lights, and put on a concert to buck themselves up. The mood is one of childlike mock bravado as they play songs like "Why Didn't You Stalk Me?," an ode to an ex-boyfriend. There are some interesting ideas, but the show fails to tie them together. At one point, the Lauras distribute handmade masks and sing about identity; it's a strong piece, but it's quickly dropped for far less cohesive fare. Both Lauras are engaging physical and verbal comics, so maybe they'll do better with their next comeback. --Steve Heisler
