Re: “The David Bowie Hepzikat Funky Velvet Flarney Solstice Spectacular, Live . . . From Space! (David Bowie's Christmas Special 1977 Network Edit)

Wow. Way to miss the oint, once again, Reader. Theater, heavy or light weight, should be fun, or at least, entertaining, and this show proves that, time and again with the jokes that both hit and, especially, the ones that miss. Now in its third year, "Bowie" brings befuddlement and amusement to audiences lucky enought to catch (or miss) all of its multi-layered satire. Greer is indeed incredible as Mercury, but failing to mention Michael Sherwin as a stately and humorous David Bowie? Shame on you. Additionally, Jared Dennis brings a surprisingly sane Mick Jagger to corrale the many "celebrity" appearances, and Melissa Nelson is delightful as a misplaced Marianne Faithful. The rest of the cast is wonderfullly rounded out, and, jesus-peru, could you have possibly missed that more, Chicago Reader? Sadly, the one outstanding fail in this show is the wierdly placed "Buster," who goes to show that even a man that beat his children (Sean Harkloerode's Bing Crosby) deserves a place on stage more than a track marked has been that never was a never was...
