The Common Pursuit
Even when cerebral chatter gives way to soapy drama, out director Moisés Kaufman can’t sharpen Roundabout’s dull revival of Simon Gray’s predictable 1984 play about two decades of lost potential. Among the Cambridge undergrads who become frenemies while launching an elitist literary zine, Tim McGeever is a standout as the droll and erudite Humphry, a self-destructive gay man who frequents dangerous cruising spots.
Laura Pels Theatre, through July 29.
