    Do-gooders want to close Texas’ (in)famous Chicken Ranch and stop the spread of sin. Where have we seen this before?
      No matter how bubbly and twee the production, its subject is proclaimed in the title. Then add incest, defloration, and infidelity to that small matter of prostitution. And unbroken strings of profanity. Nor does Jesus come off particularly well. How did that escape the Moral Majorityâeuro;™s everwatchful eye?.

    The Civic might take a cue from the lesson of its own Thoroughly Modern Millie.
      Meanwhile, at Hotel Priscilla (where Millie and other aspiring young ladies are staying), proprietress and washed-up actress Mrs. Meers (Kathie Doyle-Lipe, who also directs) is dressed in the Asian equivalent of blackface. She’s secretly running an operation whereby she shanghais naïfs into a life of geisha-like slavery.

    Though it’s only “in-concert,” the Civic’s West Side Story is a concert you won’t soon forget.
      For two nights only at the Civic, Johnson is going to direct a large-scale production: 16 onstage instrumentalists, 25 singers, 29 dancers.

    Buddy is a rock 'n' roll museum with moving dioramas %uFFFD and the bobby-soxers are screaming.
      As Buddy, Gunn is even more than a singing-dancing-acting triple threat: He quintuples his impact by shredding his Strat and looking good in horn-rims, too. Gunn’s acting rings the changes from nervous kid to defiant artist, from gentle balladeer to rockin’ rebel.

    In the Civic’s Gun, cardboard characters shoot off pleasant songs. Shouldn’t musicals aim higher?
      Despite Peter Stone’s 1999 revision, most of the material in between the famous Irving Berlin songs amounts to patter, filler, and a poor excuse for a plot filled with adults acting like emotionally stunted children. It’s all about as authentic as the white guys in ponytails of this production, passing themselves off as Indians.
