Passionless play

The heart of Abelard and Heloise skips a few beats

Hoitsma fares better, if only because her narrowly defined spitfire role leaves her the option to surprise us. She seizes that opportunity by entering hypocrisy from the back way--appropriately, her role as a bride of Christ is at once too loose and too constraining. Her final, lonely call for the God she doesn't believe exists ends Abelard and Heloise with the tortured panache sorely lacking in most of what preceded it.

Abelard and Heloise runs through June 22. Call (214) 353-9916.
