In his third one-man show, writer-performer Seth Weitberg uses a stream-of-consciousness flow of characters--ranging across ages and genders, strengths and weaknesses--to dramatize how people see themselves as having multiple identities. With no narrative or chronology, and with personalities coming and going swiftly, often on nonverbal cues, Weitberg's ambitious conceit frequently tested my patience and capacity to empathize. He is most engaging when his phantoms take recognizable shape--cool kids smoking, a scared little girl who asks her parents, "I know times are hard, but can I please have a night-light?"--and also when he shifts gears and sends up slam poetry and Facebook. --Ryan Hubbard
