New Review: Body Awareness

This opened the other night. Review is for Back Stage.

Here's a tease:

It's like something from the Christopher Durang playbook: a lesbian psychology professor, her lover, and her lover's son, a deadpan social misfit and intellectual savant who may or may not have Asperger's syndrome. At the college where the professor teaches, a weeklong event is underway about body awareness, but as she tells us in taut, pithy monologues laced with academic-speak, the event actually touches on many things -- female objectification, exploitation photography, being ashamed of one's body. There's also an exhibit of female nude photography by a man who, like his work, is rude, wise, and chauvinistic -- and a guest in the ladies' home.
