Girl is a choose-your-own-adventure immersive theater experience about the thousand-million choices that women have to make in a given day, as well as the choices that people of all genders make when interacting with women. Director Mary Hubert has transformed Annex Theatre into an apartment full of roomies, all of whom appear to be pre-gaming for a mysterious costume party. The "girls" direct audience members through the apartment with a light hand, act out brief scenes, and operate activities. The setup flips the script on ye ole performer/audience agency dynamic. Though the actors embody characters who are exploring ideas about consent and choice, the audience is literally exploring ideas about consent and choice. At one point, I was asked to apply liquid foundation to the face of a character who spoke with a German accent. During the process, glitter exploded all over me. It was fine. I learned something. Oh, and I should say this production seems to have no relation to Lena Dunham's popular television show, but sources have informed me that there IS an episode in this season of Girls where the crew attends an immersive theater performance. So maybe it's a little bit of a three-dreams-down meta-theater commentary on the show's plural cousin? Whatever the case, it's weird, it's cheap, it's witchy, and, most importantly, it's not humorless. RICH SMITH
