And What a Damn Fine Morning It Is, by Trace Crawford, is another theme and variations venture, but with thinner material, so it doesn't really fly. It's not that it crashes and burns; it never really gets off the ground. As Ted (Flynn) and Jim (Ted Clement), the actors do a decent job, especially Clement, who gives considerable personality to his self-impressed character. They are suburban men in their bathrobes, getting their morning newspapers and bragging about what they own. It's really that simple, and that uneventful.
Rich Orloff's A Womb With a View isn't so much thin as threadbare. Still in utero, about to be born, is New Kid (Meg Taylor-Roth), being given advice about what to expect by a foursome (Almeida, Chipman, Catherine Fay, Kelly Doran). Never mind the details; not much that isn't obvious is imparted. Fortunately, most of the other pieces make up for it.
