Charlie's Good Time Gospel Hour, Gigantic Productions. As Charles Manson, the wanna-be folksinger gone horrifyingly to seed, Phil Gigante performs with such mercurial explosiveness that he's nothing short of riveting--for a while. By starting the show at 100 mph and keeping the pedal to the floor for about an hour and a half, he wore me to a frazzle long before we reached the finish line.
