Review: Everybody

In “Everybody,” Jacobs-Jenkins dispenses with the Christian morality of “Everyman” but doesn’t know what to offer in its place. He seems to be at a loss, and this sentiment is echoed by his characters. The third-wall-breaking narrator, Usher (Sarah Lucht), opens the play by saying, “We are dealing with some really ancient material, so let’s trust it to be really wise and meaningful, okay?” and closes it by concluding, “I have no idea what that was, but it’s very old, so please be respectful.”
