IndyWeek write up of the “Occuy the Stage” WTF reading:
Shut Up, I'm On A Diet!: Under Lorelei Lemon's direction, playwright Catherine Weingarten's irreverent, cinematic farce seemed like a feminist twist on Wes Anderson. Conniving but charming California teen Tess (Anna Broadway) is driven to a sketchy eating-disorder clinic by her equally sketchy dad (a convincing Allan Maule). The deft social satire hits its bull's-eyestrendy tech and pop psychology as Tess manipulates a clueless intern (a rewarding Matthew Tucker) and her straitlaced roomie (a believable Rosemary Takacs).
