Transcript ENCORE SHOWS OFFER VARIETY OF TALENTS REVIEW BY ALEXANDER LANGHAM The situation at the Encore has turned out wackily unpredictable. After an initial production of Applause, whose charms were for the most part primitive. Gary Shannon's series of semi-drag shows resumed in February with a Cabaret that really delivered. Then in early March came a reversion to amateurism with Hello, Dolly. I'm aware of the gallantry of a cast whose show goes on in the face of appalling offstage problems; but why did the producers add to the onstage travail by forcing the cast to lip-sync the dismally corrupt soundtrack album when the witty original-cast one is readily available. Steve Weaver's choreography, the fire- batons (during the "Parade" number) of Randy Sircy, an unexpectedly touching "It Only Takes a Moment" by Charlie Watkins and Dan Parmer, and the energetic presences of Parmer and Sally Marie (wearing moustache, sideburns, and pants - and looking good in them - as Vander- gelder), and the charmingly nervous one of Bobby Huckabee(at last! a pretty chorus girl in the Encore line!) all helped out the show; the technical foulups and interminable introductory narration did not. Cabaret, however, was different. As with any lip-synced show, its high points were achieved through inspired dancing and clever choreography with one exception: Corky Lawrence's gum-chewing, sadly-out-of-condition chorus girl, certainly in no shape to compete with the rest of the line but gamely sweating to match the other lovelies step by laborious step, was a lusciously funny performance. By late March or April the Encore will present Purlie. Will it be terrific, or something from which eyes are hastily averted? Whatever the result, it's bound to be interesting. GOOD GAY BLOOD . . . AURA's Blood Drive continues to pick up support with an article in Agape MCC's Open Door this month urging people to give. It's so easy (yes, I've done it), only takes a few minutes, really doesn't hurt . . . and could one day mean the difference between life and death for a brother or sister in need of blood. (Incidentally, in a blood bank the blood is used pretty soon after being given, so we actually have only a "paper" blood balance. This means that while we have been fortunate in not having to use any of the blood in our account so far, there are several "straight" Fort Worthians running around town now with good gay blood in their veins.) Donate to the AURA Pool at John Peter Smith Hospital Blood Bank any time, night or day. Call AURA, (817) 338- 0128 if you have questions. Correction: "Mr. Leather-Dallas'74" was incorrectly identified last month as Biff. Our apologies to Mike Harold who was actually "Mr. Leather-Dallas '74."
