Dialogue Theatre debuts with Rachel Morgan's solo based on Living at the Edge of the World, the 2000 book by Jamie Pastor Bolnick and "Tina S.," recounting the latter's years as a teenage crack addict living in the tunnels under Grand Central Station. The show highlights Tina's extraordinary survival skills in the face of crushing poverty, dubious addiction counselors, vicious sexual predators, and debased cops (a precinct full of officers insist she shower while they watch). Morgan and director Jordy Williams aren't afraid of the dark, difficult material, but their muddled storytelling compromises the show's impact. The splintered script's confused chronology makes it difficult to discern forward motion in Tina's journey. And, though Morgan is an engaging performer, Williams's approach keeps her on display rather than in dialogue with her audience. —Justin Hayford
