Exploring the difficulties of simultaneously coming of age and out of the closet may not sound like uncharted territory; nevertheless, it's rare to find a play that treats the subject with the kind of clarity and precision we find in "What's Wrong With Angry?," making its U.S. debut at the Celebration Theatre.

This is a terrible book about a potentially interesting subject. It addresses itself to high rollers who thought they would do well in the 1980s, but ended up feeling blue in the '90s, with more credit-card debt than savings and, possibly, without a job.
