Transcript 14 MONTROSE VOICE/MAY 16, 1986 Houston Goes For Broke! by Bill O'Rourke Houston: The Jewel of the Ship Channel (Comedy Workshop) is an exuberant rol- lercoaster ride through the dangers of living in our favorite city during the current fiscal crisis. The fast-paced first act takes us up to giddy heights and throws us into hairpin turns. After a few shows, this time Comedy Workshop is back on track. Expect the unexpected! This is polished improvisation at its best. The cast (Bill Fagan, Cheryl Holiday, Michelle McCarel, Joe McCutcheon, Jim Patterson and Michelle Watkins) and director Kathy Drago have not only performed admirably but also created great material. It's timely, true on many level, hilarious and, at times, touching. But, as with any rollercoaster, you have to watch out for those dips. The (mercifully) shorter second act is given over to one long sketch that only works intermittently. The long sketch that ends the first act shows a family-owned gas station going belly-up. This family and its friends are a bunch of East Texas eccentrics that would feel right at home in Greater Tuna. The cast takes their time with these characters and treats them gently. We identify with them and really care what happens to them. We don't laugh at them so much as we laugh with them. They are the kind of people who would say, "When life sends you lemons, make lemonade!" We're left with an odd, realistic kind of optimism. The second act concerns a telethon to aid the ailing oil industry. Instead of three dimensional people, we are given, for the most part, colorful cardboard caricatures. The cast doesn't like many of them. So we don't either. All too often, we are asked to laugh at these people, cruelly, bitterly. Our (L to R) Aliz'e, Richard Moore, Minay Miller "But She Won't Lie Down" at Theatre Suburbia Atlantic Starr, Southern Starr Friday, 7:30 mouths pucker with the taste of alum and ashes. It hardly becomes a theater sitting geographically on the doorstep of River Oaks to so constantly forget that rich people are still people. The music is a little busy this time. It's easier to understand Fagan and Patterson's lyrics. They are delightfully witty. AH in all, a damn fine show! d Notes I'm going to see The Best Little Whorehouse just after press time.
