Where: Bruka Theater - 99 North Virginia Street, Reno
A two act play. You do not want to miss this show! Check out a portion of the review of the New York production:
"Busch's "Psycho Beach Party" is a comic trash compactor of a play that takes an already silly genre - early 1980's surf and beach blanket movies - and sends it to camp heaven.
Created by the writer-performer and his Theater-in-Limbo company who brought us "Vampire Lesbians of Sodom," Mr. Busch's new play fits squarely in the same mold of hectic drag comedy. "Psycho Beach Party" carries its amusing plot premise of a Gidget-like protagonist with a Jekyll-Hyde split personality through a dozen swift hairpin turns without losing its basic thread.
Mr. Busch brings an aura of cheerful, poker-faced clownishness to the role of Chicklet Forrest, a demure teen-age girl with a flat chest and a maniacal alter ego. When Chicklet's submerged psyche, Ann, announces herself, the stage lights flicker, Mr. Busch dazedly bats his eyes, and the simpering Chicklet metamorphoses into a voracious camp dragon dispensing commands in a Tallulah Bankhead basso profundo. Chicklet's dream is simply to have her own surfboard. The monstrous Ann wants nothing less than to be come "dominatrix empress of the planet Earth."
The play gleefully defies logic as it subverts clean-cut Hollywood stereotypes"
