“Distracted” at Arts West

See my full review in The Seattle Times, NW Tuesday Section on March 15.

“Distracted”  addresses the tendency to overmedicate ourselves and our children in a society where TV, cell phone, iTunes, and electronic communication blast at us 24-7. Playwright Loomer suggests that this is society’s sickness, this unwarranted medication of what is probably normal behavior. Great topic! One worthy of serious concern, but it’s presented like a TV sitcom with stock characters and the requisite number of laugh lines. A little too over-the-top for me.
