Weekend To-Do: "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead"

"DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD"
7:30 p.m., The Weekend Theater. $10-$14.

It's a concept that has churned up a bit of controversy during its off- and off-off-Broadway runs, not to mention one that's guaranteed to strike you as either perverse, hilarious, or, if you're like me, a bit of both. Okay, so the "Peanuts" gang has grown up, bypassing the "lovable misfit" stage and going straight into "borderline sociopath" territory. Or at least "notably troubled." C.B.'s doing a little more than "good grief"-ing over Snoopy's death by rabies, his sister Sally has gone goth and their old football friends have blossomed into potheads, homophobes, hoes and institutionalized ne'er-do-wells. I shudder to think what the authors would subject "The Family Circus" clan to. "Dog Sees God" continues for the next three weekends, closing its run on Nov. 20.
