This inept musical portrays a dance band that regroups after many years. The slimmest of plotlines connects a handful of archetypal characters The Ballerina, The Cowboy, The Exotic Dancer etc.
Its billed as a choose-your-own adventure, so MC Gary Lucich comes to the audience several times for help making choices about how the story should proceed. But the device seems bogus the troupe carries on with its own mysterious agenda of uninspired aerobicized choreography to a bizarre selection of pop tunes.
The confusing mix of live and recorded narration and music (trumpet and piano players onstage) doesnt help with this efforts amateurish feel.
