  • Welcome Damsels in Distress, an exhilarating gift of a comedy about college, the female intellect, the limitless male ego, inventing a new dance, and suicide prevention. show more

  • You can almost say it simulates an experience of brain injury in the audience: Nothing adheres, nothing connects. It's just nonstop cuteness, poses and emptiness - with nothing logically following from one moment to the next. It would be exaggerating to call it torture, and yet why split hairs? show more

  • Just as precise and self-consciously precious as predicted. Which doesn't mean it hasn't got moments of charming wit buried under all its archness. show more

    I am a 63 year old woman, who went to college in the 60\'s. First a Catholic Women\'s college on the San Francisco peninsula, then San Jose State(when SDS and Juan Carlos were there) then UCSC. This brought back many vivid memories of those college days, frats, mixers at Stanford, USF, Moraga, rival colleges-Mills. Our self pretentious selves, oh happy days.

    It might have been funnier if I could better hear what they were saying. I\'m not sure whether the fault was with the soundtrack or the theater sound system, but the sound was often not as clear as it should have been.
