Life is a steambath and we're all just waiting for our turn in the stalls. From the author of Scuba Duba. The men's area in a steambath is a microcosm into which a girl walks, takes a public shower and then retires leaving the stage to two homosexuals who do a song and dance in lip sinc. After this prelude, a Puerto Rican gives orders to a scanning TV monitor which result in two car crashes, an act of incest and a theft in a bus terminal. Some of the wishes he projects are vindictive: giving one area more unwanted rain or throwing a dart into someone's eye. Some are erotic. A new arrival does not believe that this person has so much power. He himself is a trickster hung up on whiskey sours. There is a scene of transfiguration with beautiful lighting and music to make the audience wonder whether or not this is God.
"This is no ordinary steambath. It is limbo a waiting room between this world and the next, and the Puerto Rican bath attendant is God himself. Has an acute sense of the ridiculous.-The New York Times
