And yes, the women lose their tops (and sometimes more) in this deliberately tawdry burlesque cabaret of Broadway numbers. The key to its success financially might be voyeuristic but artistically, director Wade Hair has hit on a winning formula of costumes, nudity, strong songs, plenty of humor and even more attitude.
That the dozen women (and Robb Ross, in drag) are not all of the body type one associates with strippers adds to the sense of being in a joint on the wrong side of the tracks.
The songs -- all performed at least competently, some with real flair -- include standbys such as "Cabaret," "Cell Block Tango" and "You Gotta Get a Gimmick," the strippers' song from "Gypsy."
But there are some lesser-known gems tucked in there too, such as "Life of the Party" and "An Old-Fashioned Love Story," both from "The Wild Party."
For some songs, lyrics have been rewritten: Ariel's sweet "Part of Your World" from "The Little Mermaid" -- very humorously staged with several nods to the film -- is filthy and funny. Though one wishes, the new lyrics were just a wee bit more clever in their rhyming (or lack thereof).
Not every song is stellar: The singing just isn't lusty enough to pull off "Bring on the Men" from "Jekyll & Hyde," for instance, but on most numbers the chorus blends well.
As the opening "Big Spender" (of course) says: "Do ya wanna have fun? How about a few laughs?" This dirty little revue will show you a good time.
