Nerve

Chance Theater

The dating scene sure isn’t what it used to be. Online sites pressure lonely folks to bare their deepest desires for all to see, while leaving behind the slight stench of desperation. But hey, the bombardment of advertising tells us this is the wave of the future. In Adam Szymkowicz’s dark comedy Nerve, we meet romantically challenged heroes Elliot and Susan at a bar on their wacky first date. He’s the victim of countless online stand-ups, she’s dated a string of Internet losers, and they’re both taking one more flailing grab at love. It’s a story for anyone who has ever looked to the World Wide Web to find a soul mate. Don’t miss what The New York Times calls “sweet, sexy, neurotic-friendly”—and breathe a sigh of relief you’re not the only one who has had first dates involving puppets and modern dance. That happens to everyone, right?
