    The American Bar, and Celebrity

    a musical variety show about mystic vaudeville. A traveling clairvoyant show has hit a snag and must replace its star, a celebrity psychic. The show depicts the auditions and manipulations as three aspirants who bare their psychic souls and struggle to fill the bill. The score ranges from broad Gilbert and Sullivan pastiche to Country to Rocky Horror-styled Rock; the action includes a seance and feats of mental bravura like reading somebody's past from a personal object. There is audience interaction. Ms. Broderick appears as Madame MarieMarie, whose job it is to unlock the door to the afterlife and unleash an evening of otherworldly entertainment. The musical was written for the three actor/singers who play the three aspirants, Bill Connington, Brian P. Glover and Katherine Gooch. The setting by Brian P. Glover resembles, according to Broderick, "a turn of the 20th century Burlesque/Vaudeville/Circus/Disco."
