DO THE MATH
Radical numbers are a subgroup of algebraic integers, and theyre also another name for the experimental songs in Object Collections addled opera, Problem Radical(s). Writer-director Kara Feely, composer Travis Just, and installation designer Hannah Dougherty expose an assemblage of electric guitars, rubber gloves, disco balls, industrial goggles, and some really appalling wigs. Though revelations of the shows plot remain guarded, they will disclose a preoccupation with American radical thinkers, civic activists, and maneuverable personal blimps. The show has received the imprimatur of downtown maestro Richard Foreman, who calls the opera a sophisticated collision between elegant formal considerations and the disruptive garbage of a world going down the drainaudiences are invited to solve this complex equation.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 5:30 p.m. Starts: April 25. Continues through May 10, 2009
