Live Action Cartoonists’ show is just as disjointed and superficial as it was in its premiere at the PAC/edge Performance Festival in spring 2005. Though the video segments are ingenious, writer-director Natsu Onoda unwisely chooses to throw everything but the kitchen sink into her 90-minute production: insomnia, capital punishment, criminality and the justice system, mercy killing, the nature of death. Onoda’s program note about her childhood insomnia and a grandmother’s passing implies the piece has some emotional import, but its simpleminded story of a teenage romance cut short and repetitious kiddie-show presentations of fact, always prefaced by the same hideous ditty, rule that out. Cute doesn’t cut it. And why conflate issues that are complex enough on their own? Through 7/30: Thu-Sat 7:30 PM, Sun 3 PM, Storefront Theater, Gallery 37 Center for the Arts, 66 E. Randolph, 312-742-8497, $15.
