And now for something different....

Years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing this musical way, way, way Off Broadway. The staging was hilarious, as the sex scenes were removed, musical numbers added, and the awful dialogue preserved.

You might be asking about the reasons I mention this old play.  Well, after the recent presidential inauguration and the changes signaled by this administration, I think that my audience might want to have a chuckle or two.  So I am starting out by suggesting that you view this set of amateur videos. (Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical - Part 1)

Not all people are in the mood to see a sanitized porn film turned into a play. One might prefer to watch a short TV film made about a jewel robbery.  (The Incredible Jewel Robbery - Part 1)  Not a single word is spoken until the end of the story - and it might be the best gag in the film.

Of course, I am known for my cynical sense of humor, and suggest that you watch this short musical number by Tom Lehrer before you ingest your favorite recreational substance. ("So Long Mom", a song for World War 3.)  His songs are as relevant today as they were 50+ years ago when they were recorded. And I wish that this man had recorded more stuff to both entertain and warn us about man's follies.
