Dangerous
Caldwell Theatre Company, (877) 245-7432
This “deconstruction” of 18th-century French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses is set in Germany during the Weimar Republic, said The Miami Herald. Michael McKeever’s “nudity-laced” play has plenty of “voyeuristic appeal” but fails to make sense of the setting or its characters.

Distracted
Laura Pels Theater, (212) 719-9393
Lisa Loomer’s new play, about parenting a child with attention deficit disorder, seems little more than a litany of “jokes and observations made about the disorder over the past decade,” said The New York Times. Star Cynthia Nixon entertains despite the weak material.

Washington, D.C.
Pumpgirl
Mead Theatre Lab, (800) 494-8497
“Ireland’s mania for monologues is beginning to challenge Guinness as a national export,” said The Washington Post. Irish playwright Abbie Spallen’s play about a love triangle rests comfortably in that tradition, and is smartly treated here by theater company Solas Nua.
