Take Me Out: This Tony Award-winner takes on an ambitious range of subjects -- homophobia, tolerance, and the lure of baseball chief among them. The play offers two stories -- one, a dark drama about a major league slugger who is revealed to be gay, pitting him against a bigoted teammate. The other plot¹s a comedy, as the slugger befriends a gay accountant who is thrilled to discover the joys of sport. The Caldwell¹s visually striking production features a fine acting ensemble, but both the story and the staging feel somewhat flat, and the overall effect is somewhat less than might be hoped for. (Through July 18 at Caldwell Theatre Company, 7873 N. Federal Hwy., Boca Raton, 561 241-7432) -- Ronald Mangravite
