Profile Theatre's intense all-male "Men of Tortuga" is a winner. In fact, this is some of the best Chicago-style ensemble performances I've seen in a while. The play centers on a vague attempt at a "corporate assassination". Although I think the play's latter half could use some editing (I was on the edge of my seat the first half), I find this play a fascinating study of the corporate male psychosis and mannerisms. "Tortuga" runs in repertory with "The Thugs".
