What's brilliant about Bill Irwin's "The Regard of Flight" -- which was written in collaboration with Doug Skinner, Michael O'Connor, and Nancy Harrington and is being revived as part of Irwin's Signature Theatre year -- is the neat two-part trick that it pulls off. This is a shining example of the new form of theater that was being shaped in the '70s and '80s, yet it's also a send-up of the pretense associated with self-appointed personages grandiosely determined to create a new theater. The other major factor in the piece's brilliance is its ability to keep a smile on the faces of overjoyed patrons from start to finish.
