Gidget Goes Nuts in Surf Spoof Psycho Beach Party
Morgan-Wixson Theatre (Santa Monica, CA)
Charles Busch's cheeky mash-up of '60s beach movies and Alfred Hitchcock suspense thrillers tells the story of Chicklet, a teenage tomboy who wants to get her Gidget on by hanging ten with the cool surf crowd. Unfortunately, she's seriously hampered by a split-personality disorder, which just happens to threaten the lives of everyone on the beach. Busch is the Tony Award-nominated playwright of such hits as Vampire Lesbians of Sodom and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife.
