Factory Theater's 30-minute goof (running after their production of Jenny & Jenni) takes the spinach-snarfing cartoon sailor to the Green City Market, couples counseling, and a trip on an airplane. The show has zero nutritional value, but, as directed by Eric Roach--and with Geoff Coates's cartoonish fight choreography--it provides the theatrical equivalent of a sugar high. Sarah Rose Graber is a fantastic Olive Oyl, with the classic pinhead hairdo, squeaky voice, and dithery logic; John Moran nails the squint and understated humor of the title character. --Laura Molzahn
