Debbie Does Dallas at the Parliament House. Debbie Does Dallas, directed by Adam McCabe, choreographed by Michelle Alagna, and with musical direction by Tim Evanicki, takes a cult classic porn film and turns it into a tongue-in-cheek musical. She is the captain of her high-school cheerleading team, but she dreams of making it to the big time by becoming a Texas Cowgirl Cheerleader. When Debbie receives a letter telling her she has qualified for the professional squad, the only thing that stands between her and the realization of her dream is bus fare to the big city of Dallas.
The girls form a company called Teen Services and get jobs, but they quickly realize minimum-wage jobs just don't pay enough. Luckily, Debbie's boss, Mr. Greenfelt, has an idea how the girls can raise enough money in time. Debbie tells the girls about Mr.
Greenfelt's idea, and they all agree to try their hands at "little favors" performed with enthusiasm by "good girls. Also starring Tripp Karhh and Jonathan Speagle playing multiple roles in frantic quick-change madness, Debbie Does Dallas is a wild time at the theater. Having never seen the cult classic film, we decided to watch the film the same evening after seeing the show.
The intricate plot is followed to the letter, but the endless sex scenes are replaced by many black out scene changes and some fun musical numbers. The romp in the locker room shower was well choreographed with towels hiding the sweet bits as the actors and actresses exposed themselves to each other. All the cheer leaders did have an orgy scene that played out behind a back lit sheet that allowed the audience to imagine what the shadows implied.
He offers a bit more, and each time she goes off into her Disney style "I have a Dream" song. It was truly laugh out loud funny. By the time you read this, Debbie will have sadly retired her pom poms. A stage manager, Beth Marshall , headset and prompt book at hand, brings the house lights to half, then dark, and cues the creation of the world.
Act One recounts the major episodes of the Old Testament, only with a twist: Act One covers the Garden of Eden, an ark, a visit with a highly rambunctious Pharaoh and finally even the Nativity.
This brings about the flood, during which Steve has a brief affair with a rhinoceros and invents infidelity. No longer blissful, Adam and Steve break up only to be reunited as two of the wise men at the Nativity. Act Two jumps to modern day Manhattan. The two women want to marry and want Adam and Steve to join them in the ceremony. A wheelchair-bound, Jewish lesbian Rabbi from cable access TV arrives to officiate. It sounds like some existential fun for the holidays. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld gmail.
