From Yasmina Reza, the French playwright behind Tony-winners Art and God of Carnage, comes this witty and acerbic play. Life X 3 is the story of Henry and Sonia, a married couple with a six-year-old son. On this ill-fated evening, a prominent astrophysicist who can make or break Henry's career shows up for dinner, along with his rebellious wife. The problem is, it's the wrong night and there's no food in the house (but plenty of wine). This is only the first catastrophe, as the veneer of politeness between the characters proves to be paper thin, only barely covering the tensions and power games bubbling underneath the surface. There are three ways the evening can go, and you get to see them all, as Reza reveals how the smallest change in circumstances can have a huge effect on the characters' fates. Learn More

What a wonderful night of entertainment. The songs and dancing were amazing. How nice to hear a black box theater production where every voice is clear and on--key. And, kudos to the sound manager for making a live band work in this space.
I was absolutely stunned by the choreography. The dancers were tight and their movements sharp. In one scene, they were seated, backs to the audience, and THEY WERE STILL DOING CHOREOGRAPHY! I almost plotzed right there, I was so happy. If you watch closely, you'll see nods to Fossey, Bye Bye Birdie, and Michael Jackson's Thriller.
The music and songs were a joy. Both funny and catchy. We were singing the title song on the way home. That's a good sign for a musical.
The plot was...well, it is called Zombie Vixens From Hell: The Musical!...so if you're expecting Shakespeare or Mamet, you're in for a bad time. The actors take the script and make it their own.
If the pacing was a little tighter in some scenes, and if it had a few small cuts, it would be perfect. This is one of those shows you see at the beginning of its run, and then again near its closing.
Finally, a shout out to all the Zombie Vixens in the cast. You know those slutty Betty Paige tattoos you see? You're like those, but brought to life. You are all dirty, nasty she-beasts. Especially the one with the megaphone.
