A natural selection

"Darwin in Malibu," a play at the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor is pretty good, says Newsday.

Playwright Crispin Whittell doesn't tarry long on that easy route to "Darwin in Malibu." Although Gary Hygom's shingled, earth-tone set for the U.S. premiere at Bay Street Theatre re-creates an oceanfront deck that suggests the Hamptons, the shirt Hal Linden sports in his role of Charles Darwin gives him away as a Malibu tourist. What's drawn him to the West Coast is uncertain: perhaps a girl, Sarah (Anna Chlumsky), who kisses him chastely on the cheek and serves him a banana smoothie, or his fascination with faults - the geologic sort that cause earthquakes as devastating as the one that jolted religion upon publication of his "The Origin of Species" in 1859.
