BWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the WaterBWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the Water
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...)
