I attended the opening of "Shag with a Twist" last night.

I am going to be uncharacteristically blunt. I am not a Shag groupie. I like his work. However, when I first heard of the concept I thought, "That's f*cked up, Y'all!" But I must admit it was the most enjoyable theatrical experience I've had since I worked in "The Theater" on Broadway in NYC.

The show is essentially a ballet (with elements of opera). The professionalism of the performers was impressive-a refreshing change from most of the amateur dreck associated with current local live entertainment. I was most impressed by the dancing-think "Ready, Steady Go!" with great choreography.

FREE DRINKS! The after Dance Party feature good food, music courtesy of Senor Amor and free drinks (though I wish they had vermouth for the Grey Goose Shag-A-Tinis. Oh, my head!) Unlike most opening night parties folks actually seemed to be having a good time. Many were well dressed, the most stylish being our own Mrs and Bamboo Ben.

Did I mention FREE DRINKS?

We'll be there...the Shag show will be the last stop on a whirlwind tour of the area for us. Driving up from San Diego on Saturday morning. First stop, Oceanic Arts. Then, lunch at Bahooka. Then, up to Pasadena to check out Mark Ryden's Wondertoonel Exhibit. Then, off to Hollywood...La Luz/Wacko, Amoeba, and of course Tiki Ti for a quick Ray's Mistake. Finally, downtown to the S.W.A.T. show. Driving back to SD that night. It should be a long and fantastic day! Hopefully we'll see some TC people somewhere along the line.

Saw the show last night. It was the Tiki News event. Thanks to Otto Von Stroheim for his amazing newsletter that keeps us informed. All that I can say is that I felt as though I had been let in on an incredible opportunity to see something in earlier stages before it becomes a world wide megahit in both stage and, I truly believe film. Kudos to the director and the design team to take Shags two dimensions and turn them into absolute perfection. The costumes, the stage, the music, the story was fantastic. I'd wish it was an ongoing series, so I could do it over and over. I still will do it again. Everyone who loves - shag/lounge/tiki/50's/60/s should be ready for the treat of the year and maybe more years to come. Thanks to Shag for his endearing talent to create such simplistic yet storytelling images. I'm really proud of all those involved (including the superb cast) I can't say more. its just @$##%@ awesome. Buy the Soundtrack CD, wow I sound like I work for them! I don't ( but I wish I did!)

The show was enjoyable and visually dynamic. The proximity of the stage to every seat made it even more personalized. I enjoyed "the coroner" the most but that's all I'm going to say. Asides from the fact that I dug the heck out of it, it was great seeing my friend Piet Agle and seeing photos of his daughter. Okay, I know it's sappy, but I'm appreciating more the simple things and less the hectic "trenches o' Tiki commerce" things these days. It was nice to get out with Benno & Laura... working a lot these days ya know.
Sappily yours,
Holden
