This new work by young playwright Stephen Karam is full of teen-speak and includes texting as a major plot point. Lindsay Carter, Ben Ismail and Matthew Rogozinksi are three teens struggling with sexuality, secrets and acceptance—the usual growing-up stuff, but done in a deliciously new and interesting way. The plot becomes a bit muddled, but the production is strong, funny and memorable. Th, F 8pm; Sa 7pm; Su 2pm. Through 11/8. $25-$29.
