Saturday night I went to the Mark Taper Forum to see "Distracted" by Lisa Loomer. It's about two parents raising a nine year-old boy with Attention Deficit Disorder. More broadly, it's about our modern information age and how between cellphones, blackberrys, 24 hour news, infotainment, etc. we're all on information overload.
The show stars Rita Wilson and Bronson Pinchot. It enjoyed it but I wish the author had given Pinchot fewer opportunities to chew the scenery -- something he obviously needs little encouragement to do.
