Amy Freed's The Monster Builder has won plenty of praise for its delightful skewering of avant garde architects and will likely win over the art-centric audiences here who know their Neutra from their I. M. Pei (in fact, doesn't South Coast Rep's logo for the play feature a face that looks eerily like Pei?). Husband and wife architects Rita and Dieter are blindsided when their idol Gregor, a famous architect who designs other-worldly monoliths for his buildings, steals Rita and Dieter's boathouse reconstruction project from under them. But the truth behind Gregor's identity is what gobsmacks them the most, as the couple learn that Gregor's real blueprints are designing plans for world domination. And that's just the beginning of many surprises in Freed's madcap, surreal comedy.
