In CLEO THEO & WU, Lucy is a modern Angeleno gal just trying to be her best self. The Cool Girl, Lady Boss and all around getting sh*t done Boss Bitch. But, suddenly, the fate of the universe is in her hands and she's gonna need to do better than self-help books and inspirational Insta-quotes. Never fear, space creatures from the future and the forgotten women of ancient history are teaming up to get Lucy on the right track. Careening through time and place, CLEO, THEO & WU takes Lucy on a heroine's journey with the remarkable women who were so much more than the power hungry, sex-obsessed obstacles that history books would have you believe.

"...She and the 12 other cast members draw laughs, though more for their delivery than the lines themselves, and the piece does arrive, toward the end, at a moment of powerful insight. But for most of the long, strange trip there, we watch in puzzlement, itching for moments of clarity that might help us answer our own questions about what led the world to its current state and what lessons might have been learned from women if only history hadn't all but written them out of the narrative."

"...But overall thereís no getting past the productionís not-ready-for-prime-time script, with its fractured narrative, its surplus of fragmented dialogue, and its hour and 40 minutes intermission-less length. The scenes among the fictional women can be especially wearing on oneís attentiveness. You can excuse these shortcomings by saying they manifest as part of a dream play, but the truth of the matter is that the material could use more cogency."
