10 Out of 12.

Aside from the omission of a frantic midnight run for pizza, Anne Washburn's "10 Out of 12" is an excruciatingly detailed and totally realistic rendering of an all-night technical rehearsal at some small, unnamed downtown theater. Les Waters (a.d. of the Actors Theater of Louisville), wrangles the 14-person ensemble at downtown's Soho Rep with a sure hand and a keen sense of irony. The busy tech crew, who live (and die a little) for this night, are terribly earnest. The actors, mere chess pieces in service to the tech, are terribly bored. The unfocused director is terribly disengaged. And the whole thing is terribly funny.
