This musical about finding freedom and meaning onstage needs a bigger stage for its lofty ambitions, vocal talent, and outsize personalities. Writer-choreographer-performer Aaron Holland and his motley cast practically sing, strut, and holler themselves out of the Playground's tiny box. The plot--a woman for whom S.M. means more than Stage Manager takes five burlesque performers hostage--gets flimsy by the end, with characters' motivations becoming increasingly untenable. And the synthesizer accompaniment could use an upgrade. But when the boys get their flame on--which is often--the numbers are catchy, bright, and hot. --Ryan Hubbard
