  Completeness at South Coast Repertory


South Coast Repertory
655 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa

How does a computer scientist hook up with a molecular biologist? He uses the algorithm method, of course. But when Elliot offers to build a computer program to help Molly with her latest research project, they discover that megabytes and microbes might not be compatible —and even the most sophisticated algorithm may freeze in the face of life’s infinite possibilities. From the author of Bach at Leipzig, a 21st-century romantic comedy about the timeless confusions of love.

Los Angeles Times - Not Recommended

"...Itamar Moses threatens to abandon his vessel toward the end of his latest dramatic expedition, which carries the title “Completeness,” though “Incompleteness” is more like it. The work, having its world premiere at South Coast Repertory in a snazzy production directed by Pam MacKinnon, aspires to be a brainy romantic comedy, but lacking natural motion it finds itself dangerously adrift on its own overtaxed cleverness."

"...Christopher Barreca's efficiently modern set and Russell H. Champa's lighting design contribute to the sense of sterility that makes Elliot and Molly's love analytical. Gimmicky time warps also produce one-dimensional characterizations. Moses tackles difficult concepts and translates them into stories that challenge the audience to think and evaluate. This production, on balance, delivers a message about human nature that strikes a familiar chord. Its greatest success is in the human equation."

"...Despite its deliberate flaunting of the KISS principle, Completeness kept me entertained for two hours and invested in Elliot and Molly as a couple, In fact, I wouldn’t mind seeing it again, if only to better “get” it the second time around."
