The New Believers

: $10-15 sliding scale (Thursdays pay what you will)

The New Believers is a continuation of work that Fever Theater began earlier this year: Where Believers examined cult behavior in a fairly straightforward fashion, this new show takes a more abstract approach to the broader questions of why people need to believe in things, and why they believe the things that they do. This company's strengths are in their sense of humor, their elegant, offbeat choreography, their willingness to take risks, and, best of all, their flair for campy musical numbers. While all of these elements are present here, unfortunately the show overreaches, burying moments of wit and energy beneath some infuriatingly precious conceits. AH
