Additional Info

Up to the minute social satire is the hallmark of this clever, easily staged revue. A score of sketches and songs parody modern manners and morals at a machine gun pace. It covers everything from the problems of using the telephone in the age of divestiture, to explaining the origin of babies to some obnoxiously precocious children, to arranging a dinner party for a date by which one of the proposed quests will be-- unfortunately-- dead. Songs include a bizarre torch song in the style (if not the spirit) of Piaf, a Steve 'n' Eydie style Vegas number and a new wave rendition of "A Bicycle Built for Two."
