The week’s other openings

Completeness; Fiction; The Velvet Sky

CompletenessTheater Wit, Chicago, (773) 975-8150“If you don’t find math sexy, Completeness might change your mind,” said Time Out Chicago. Itamar Moses’s clever rom-com is propelled by two grad students’ questions about the possibility of certainty, both in love and in data. Somehow, stars Matt Holzfeind and Kristina Valada-Viars “parlay higher math into persuasive pillow talk.”

FictionAmphibian Stage Productions, Fort Worth, (817) 923-3012“You can probably guess what truth is stranger than” in Steven Dietz’s play, said The Dallas Morning News. Still, this story of a husband and wife who read each other’s diaries “holds our interest by alternately fulfilling and sabotaging expectations.” A “formidable” Lydia Mackay stars.

The Velvet SkyTheater! Theatre!, Portland, Ore., (503) 306-0870As a woman who hasn’t slept since the birth of her now-teenage son, Karen Wennstrom “looks appropriately frazzled and frightened,” said the Portland Oregonian. Yet for all its talk of psychological distress, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s one-act proves “brisk and frequently funny.”
