Director Corey Rittmaster writes in a program note that this campy, vulgar musical about three horny grannies on the prowl for 20-somethings isn't for "uptight adults." Yet it's hard to imagine a show more uptight--terrified, even--about the possibility that older women might want sex. It's assumed to be absurd that the trio--who could be in their 50s or 80s, thanks to a murky script and murkier performances--talk dirty about blow jobs and anal sex, much less dare to imagine that their "wrinkly, crusty" bodies might elicit anything but shudders of horror and disgust. With Victorian venom, the musical tries to render unconventional female sexuality monstrous. Rittmaster's perfunctory direction makes the show look hastily tossed together. --Justin Hayford
