Transcript DECEMBER 9, 1986 / MONTROSE VOICE 7 Enquiring Elves Want to Know Houston Live Review by Bill O'Rourke Mi ml rose Voice Buy Note. Pray Later is not a bad show. It's just not quite up to the Comedy Workshop's usual high standards. I saw it at a preview for the press and friends ofthe theater. I understand that they had changed or added some ofthe material earlier that same day. This is a revue. So all the pieces are changeable. This is rehearsed improvisation. So any changes are instantaneous. It's quite possible that you won't see the same show I saw. That's good. Even their "friends" were leaving at intermission. There are some very interesting pieces. A bored elf tries to quit his job with the omniscient Santa. A motorist happens into a town where the National Enquirer is nothing hut the truth. Inside a multi-cinema with so many screens that each theater has only two chairs, Dial M for Moron features a beautiful girl who bends over backwards to coop erate with a psychotic killer. It's just that this evening never reached that level of inspired lunacy of which this cast has proven itself to be quite capable. Forthe first time in quite a while, both Menzels, the founders of the troupe and owners of the theater, are onstage. Jenny Noble, Bill Fagan and Fritz Dick- mann are on hand. Logan Bazar is only seen on video, doing humorous newscasts. This is a strong team, all names lo he reckoned with. I'm sure they won't be down long. Jenny Noble and Bill Fagan of the Comedy Workshop In the past. 1 have occasionally complained that their humor was too cynical. Now that they are more light-hearted, it seems cruel of me to complain that their instruments are a trifle blunt. I'm sure that by next week this show should be sharp and shiny (say that five times, fast), after working away on thewhetstoneof audience reac tions. n Notes -lean not B.
