REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., April 18, 2001
Handing over this cultural low-water marker to the boys of Mr. Sinus Theatre is about as sporting as shooting fish in a barrel. Olivia Newton-John plays a muse to a roller-boogie artist. Need we say more?
The stage version of the 1980 film is ridiculous – and a ridiculous amount of fun
