Helena (Cristi Miles) is a 35-year-old lawyer who likes to drink; Bob (Isaac Lamb) is a two-bit criminal who peaked in 1987. When their paths cross on a drunken night at the bar, their one-night stand turns into much more. (Spoiler: There will be bondage.) Third Rail's first-ever musical production, Midsummer is is simultaneously profane, existentially bleak, uplifting, and warmhearted. If the show has a moral, it's something like this: "Life can be pretty shitty! So if you find a chance at a bit of happiness, grab it and don't let go!" If more romantic comedies had this attitude, I'd watch more romantic comedies. ALISON HALLETT
