Killing Time

Miracle Theatre (Teatro Milagro) (map) Southeast
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Dec. 18 2010

$15-18

The 3rd Floor is made up of some of the funniest people in Portland. With their hilarious, weird, and impressively geeky sketch comedy shows, the troupe has, in a whole lot of ways, set the bar for theatrical comedy in Portland. Fortunately for us, they've set that bar pretty damn high; unfortunately for them, they've set it high enough that, this time, they've failed to clear it. On the surface, Killing Time sounds like a great idea—a full-length time-travel comedy. But the thing never gels: While the cast finds laughs where they can, the rambly script stretches in weird, confusing directions. The idea of a full-length narrative production by the 3rd Floor is, still, a great one—and I'm guessing that at some point, they'll stage one that's a must-see. What you don't need to see, though, is them working out the kinks with Killing Time. ERIK HENRIKSEN
