WOMEN BEHIND BARS - a must see!
"Tony Award winner Tom Eyen’s homage to sleazy B-movie matinee-fillers, WOMEN BEHIND BARS, is exploitation theater to the max. Under Joe Watts’s direction...the cartoon situations are brightened by a game cast, who play it straight even when in drag. During the show’s initial run off-off-Broadway in 1974, drag superstar Divine played the Matron, just so you know what kind of prison play this is. Glen Lambert, though, is himself divine as the bull dyke Matron. Burly, with a rotund contralto voice that Tallulah Bankhead would envy and lime eye shadow arching onto his forehead, Lambert is like a careening semi-wide trailer barreling full-tilt upon you. Actors...give these low-lifes just enough semblance of truth to keep the campy high jinks under control and laughs coming". D. L. Groover-Houston Press
"The show was bawdy, campy, hysterically funny, wonderfully acted, beautifully ensembled. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And the sleazy Club Resurrection is the perfect venue for this over-the-top sleazefest! The cast deserves SRO audiences at every performance. Thanks for a great theatre experience when it seems that most theaters in our cow-town have resorted to mostly "safe" and "status quo" theatre". Buzz Bellmont-actor, singer, musician
"I enjoyed the show! It is certainly played with wild abandon, which works very well for this play. There is a lot of funny stuff. I found it very cleverly and innovatively staged in that tiny space as well."
Ron Jones-Equity actor and director, Artistic Director of Cy-Fair College Theatre
