Kid Simple: A Radio Play in the Flesh

CoHo Theater (map) Northwest
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through March 26 2011

$25

CoHo Productions' staging of Kid Simple is full of elegant solutions to technical challenges and wry jokes about its own mechanics. Where it fails, though, is in fleshing out its concepts: Campy melodrama comes through loud and clear, but precocious Moll (Sarah McGregor), who has invented a machine that can pick up sounds that usually go unheard, is a two-dimensional cliché of a scrappy girl heroine, intermittently entertaining, but over-contrived. Like Moll herself, the show is eager to impress, but hard to care about.
