Despite its title, GayCo's latest LGBT-themed sketch comedy revue never really takes President Obama to task for dillydallying on gay rights. But then, Sean Cusick's production isn't strong on topical material in general. The bit about giving a pair of pigs swine flu is too obvious, for example, and Vincent Kracht's impression of the perpetually unhinged Glenn Beck is entirely too hinged. The show is at its best when it sticks to the everyday 'mo on the street: a gay guy who can't stomach details of his lesbian roommate's love life, two grooms in Iowa finding surprising levels of tolerance at a church potluck. Even when the material misses, though, an appealing cast manages to salvage a chuckle or two. Standouts are Kathy Betts and Jim Bennett--zany and brainy, respectively. --Zac Thompson
