Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

thrice-told tale about boy meeting girl is sitcom-amusing: breezy, light, funny, not going anywhere too deep for too long (exception noted below). actors were all appealing and enjoyable to watch. the play is cast in the 'tech' milieu -- the 'love couple' meet online (funny how this seems so dated at this point -- and i think it is trying to tell us something about the isolation that we face by getting lost in our virtual world (that is my interpretation and it may not be what the playwright is saying). it's all ok until the female half of the budding couple is sitting on an airplane and lays an excruciating monologue on us that is unintentionally, i think, comic in its attempt at profundity about our relationship with the cyber world, a glaring misstep in an otherwise basically honest play. i had to resist the urge to LOL during this speech. the play was perfectly proportioned in every respect except for this time stoppage. maybe i just didn't get it.
