Looking Up by Carla Cantrelle

Running February 16-March 2, 2008, at Theatre for the New City in NYC. This two-actor show about finding love takes place in a bar that hosts a trapeze act(!). Wendy (Cantrelle), the trapezista, looks down to find Jack the bartender (Bryant Mason) looking up at her, and together they brave a relationship filled with homilies about "hanging in" and "working without a net" (the symbolical wordplay gets thick during the show's 80 minutes). Too often Cantrelle settles for stock relationship scenarios without digging deeply, which deprives the script of any real bite or surprise. Still, the show is pleasant enough, especially with actual trapeze work done live onstage.
