Composer and lyricist Kyle DeGoey parodies the romantic comedy movie genre with clever rhyming couplets and oodles of pop culture references: “Star Wars,” “Harry Potter,” the entire 1980s John Hughes-Molly Ringwald catalogue. After their respective breakups, a pair of Minnesota dreamers head to San Diego for the Rom-Com convention, only to find themselves swapping “Pretty in Pink” observations and, maybe, falling in love. If you like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” you’ll love this irreverent musical. Sure, the harmonizing is a little shaggy, but the jokes are funny and the characters irresistible. (7 p.m. Tue., 10 p.m. Thu., 8:30 p.m. Fri., 2:30 p.m. Sat. Aug. 12, Ritz Theater Mainstage, 345 13th Av. NE., Mpls.)
