Critics’ Picks January 13

Tate Ellington as Other Man,
Trudy and Max in Love, South Coast Repertory
The entire four-person ensemble grants Zoe Kazan’s world premiere rom-com notable affability and grace. But in his local stage debut, Tate Ellington stands out in a wide variety of comic roles—including a host of waiters, a nerdy neighbor, a laid-back therapist, and a womanizing TV celeb. It’s not Ellington’s fault that he’s not called upon to drop by as Trudy’s husband, Cliff, the main obstacle to the titular romance. Yet it’s a tribute to Ellington’s talent that you keep hoping Cliff will appear, just because you want to see the thesp bring this much-talked-about character to life. Ellington himself should be much talked about down the road. —Bob Verini

Sara Hennessy as Judith,
Frail yet eternally strong, savvy yet desperate and crumbling, Judith must save the life she loves. She does so by falling into a very human trap in this dark allegory. In portraying Judith, Sara Hennessy is almost translucent, every emotion playing gently across her face. And she does so mere feet from the audience that surrounds her, pressing in like the watchful eyes of the play’s totalitarian future.
—Dany Margolies

Christopher Vened in a one-person show,
Vened’s skill as a mime enables him to intricately reveal the complex physical organization that makes us human and how it transcends all other life forms on earth.”
—Julio Martinez
