Debauch

Debauch By VarieTEASE

Baby Blue Start Productions

Footlights Theatre, Orlando FL</strong>

While no one spoke German and the table to table phones were missing, this show makes you feel exactly like an extra in “Cabaret.” Blue and the Invisible Arts crew pulled together another lip sync extravaganza, completely different than their previous high energy low inhibition exhibitions. Baby Blue, Nick Gray, and the Lollie – Yezzi – Tymisha troika were joined by Beth Marshal in her black leather lounge wear. Beth has the satanic high priestess shtick nailed, and offers communion by pouring a bowl of hot wax on the cast. It’s a bit kinky, but cheaper than the regular hair waxing places.

The act opens with Mr. Grey posing as the tough Village People-style cop busting Blue as they dance “Nobody Knows Where It’s At.” Blue wears those ridiculous city ordained latex pasties and a fuzzy pink elephant trunk G-string. It’s a happy but ambiguous pachyderm, and she soon upstages it with a large lavender product placement from the sponsoring Adult Toy store over on the Trail. This segues into a Betty Page illustrated live action version of Madonna’s “Hanky Panky.” How is it the only Madonna songs I hear on the radio are the sappy MTV hits, and all this great B material slides past me? Does Blue get special Sex Show Only DJ releases?

The pace of the show gradually slows and the dancing becomes more classical ballet oriented and some of the songs get downright wistful, even if ball gags are involved. Blue and Yezzi even knock off a Swan Lake feeling break up ballad. You come for the eroticism, and leave with a tear – Joel Gray would be proud.

The Footlights Theatresocial calndar is filling up fast and this very unusual show only runs on Wednesdays. There not much up against it, so there’s no reason to miss this extravaganza of run-run-leap dying swans mixed with a pounding disco soundtrack, latex morality guards, and Beth Marshall acting like you always imagined she does.
