Inspired by a professor they had at Brown, these three bickering radicals (who use their own names) employ snappy choreography and a PowerPoint presentation to indoctrinate audiences into their vaguely feminist agenda. But even with a disarmingly deadpan Chris Lowell on hand as the ladies' hopeless assistant, these liberal-arts-school liberators are amusingly incompetent. This inept insurgent shtick eventually fizzles, but thanks to ditzy Alexandra, tempestuous Tara, and equivocating Alice, the production's "<3" stays in the right place.
