What if life was really just a giant game of musical chairs? And what if you didn’t end up in the chair you wanted? That’s the story Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls sets out to explore. Told in a series of interconnected vignettes, Naomi Iizuka’s play follows 11 characters as they try to figure out who they are and where they’re going in life, from a pregnant, neurotic woman recently dumped by her boyfriend who moves to Alaska, to a dog who isn’t really sure anymore if he is a dog or a man. The story itself, as these twentysomethings try to discover themselves and find romance, is frankly a little exhausting. Existentially angsty questions weigh down the script: “I don’t know who I am! I don’t know what I’m supposed to be!” But the Theatre Vertigo cast, directed by Jen Wineman, delivers well-timed comedic performances as the characters grapple with whether they should, in fact, marry the person they love, or whether that paw is indeed a hand.
