In a galaxy far, far away, a trio of Latex-clad space bimbos are busy fighting crime when they receive an alarming message: Someone is murdering songbirds at an intergalactic discothèque. Something must be done -- and to the tune of a disco beat, if at all possible.
So commences Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens, a wildly entertaining outer space musical farce which is now playing as the season opener at Nearly Naked Theatre. Fans of vintage disco and camp will love the sequined nonsense about a nightclub owner and former magician who went wrong when he lost his one true love. The musical, written by four former Kent University students for the 1995 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, offers fine performances and a handful of impossibly catchy musical numbers. You will almost certainly leave the theater humming Glitter Boots Saved My Life.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:45 p.m.; Sundays. Starts: Aug. 14. Continues through Sept. 5, 2010
