Beauty and the Beast (1982)

A post modern vaudeville that tackles the binaries of beauty and beast and takes on subjects such as Reagan, religion, the arms race, Johnny Cash’s face, queer love and father-daughter relationships. The story is presented by an unlikely troupe of characters including a salvation army sergeant, an aging lesbian vaudevillian and a female rabbi in ballet shoes.  Written and performed by Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin.

Footage of the performance can be found here.
