When: Mondays. Continues through Oct. 17 2016
Amanda Dunne Acevedo and Lindsey Barlag Thornton are absolutely in it to win it. Granted, I have no idea what "it" is, and in this "devised duet," they're fairly open about that being a mystery to them as well. Like a blackbox studio exercise, the two use the concept of exhaustion as a jumping-off point for personal vignettes, endurance challenges, comedy bits, and absurdist snippets. Genesis isn't kidding when it calls the project a "messy romp"—by the end, the floor is littered with confetti and spaghetti, and both a mattress and a Slip'N Slide have been pressed into service. Thornton and Acevedo are compelling storytellers, but here they're kicking around ideas very much in development. —Dan Jakes
