Ever since we saw Gattaca we've been sort of creeped out by the whole cloning thing. And Multiplicity? Now that movie was just pure evil. So at first we turned up our noses at the Undermain's production of A Number by Caryl Churchill. But when we looked into the plot (a father is forced to reckon with his abandoned clone sons once they come into adulthood and find out about one another) and the amazing responsibility of actor Cameron Cobb to play said multiple sons, we decided this play was definitely worth a shot. Cloning is creepy, but clones, played by one guy, looking for answers, that's creepy and entertaining. Let's just see if they get some from dear old dad. The show runs through June 11 in the basement space at 3200 Main St. Shows are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $20. Call 214-747-5515.
