And the two great actors currently trapped together in Michael Weller's 50 Words need a play. Elizabeth Marvel and Norbert Leo Butz work in seemingly opposite ways—her lines cascading upward from an endless whirlpool of inner angst, his sputtering with comic sparks off a loose wire in some unhinged cerebral circuit—but their dueling approaches make this aesthetic sparring match far more riveting than the one in Weller's chronicle of one worst-case night in a failed marriage. Though, as usual, some of the scenic detours in his dialogue are intriguing, Weller's script is basically just another spousal-recrimination fiesta; you might describe it as the all-biped remake of Albee's The Goat—a work in which Marvel and Butz might get juicier results.
