Larry Bortnicker and Sally Deering's cabaret musical features five talented singers romping through a set of song parodies--purportedly numbers cut from Broadway hits during their out-of-town tryouts. The show skews toward sexual and scatological humor. One selection puts a lesbian twist on Mame's "Bosom Buddies," another finds two gang members from West Side Story pining for a same-sex somewhere, a South Pacific send-up substitutes "licky licky" (i.e., oral sex) for "Happy Talk," the hippies from Hair invoke "the age of Uranus"--you get the idea. David Zak directs the Bailiwick Repertory production of this diverting if mediocre entertainment. --Albert Williams
