Kirk Pynchon and Mike Beyer's affectionate spoof of 1980s fashion and music loses its way by the end. None of the conflicts in this comedy about "the number one dance show on cable access" carry enough heft. An intriguing, Hairspray-esque debate about putting more black music on the show goes nowhere, and the romantic intrigues come to life more in Pynchon's inspired choreography than Sarah Rose Graber's staging. But the cast--particularly Aileen May as hateful teen queen Tanya and Esteban Andres Cruz as the Adam Ant-like Doug, pursued by a gaggle of girls hilariously oblivious to his obvious gayness--capture the tone of the era with zest and a thorough commitment to plain dumb fun. --Kerry Reid
