    by Christi Esterle - Oct 24, 2014

    You'd think a play called Psycho Beach Party would be a little more, well....crazy. But Charles Busch's affectionate parody of 1960s beach movies seldom seems more unhinged than the cheerful teen romps it draws inspiration from. Oh, it's not all sun and fun in the sand, to be sure. There's a fair amount of sexual kink, a domineering mother who could give Margaret White a run for her money, and revelations of a tragic past, but it all feels so light. The poster for the Theatreworks production, featuring a knife-wielding beach bunny, promises a gruesome good time that the play never really delivers. (more...)

    If the writers of Airplane! had written a film noir, it would be Joan Crawford in...'Flesh and Blood!' The show chronicles the iconic Joan Crawford taking on yet another classic film role, Beulah Drake - the quintessential martyr house frau of film noir. Beulah trades in her apron for jewels and minks by unwittingly associating with the criminal element. Soon, she finds herself entangled in a plot of murder, revenge, and the sordid realm of childhood stardom! If you're not on the edge of your seat yet, you need a smaller chair. (more...)
