Back in the ’70s, a decade pockmarked by Vietnam and Watergate, the government deemed John Lennon and his peace-promoting politics worthy of FBI scrutiny. In Ears, two agents — one a naive newbie (Bill Dawes), the other a seasoned cynic (an appealingly irascible Dan Lauria, from The Wonder Years) — track the Beatle while playwright Mark St. Germain reveals why it’s wrong to judge people, and events, as either good or evil. Timely, yes, and perhaps even important, but about as exciting as a trench coat. (TC)
