Above & Beyond the Valley of the Ultra Showgirls
“One of the most exhilarating, hysterical, outrageous shows… Expect lots of raunch, simulated sex, crystal meth and murdered Girl Scouts. But it’s also totally tight and professional, and almost everyone who sees it drags their friends back the next week.” – Metropolitan Magazine
“It rocks! Everything a good night of musical theater should have.” – San Francisco Bay Guardian
“It’s not surprising that the show has won over even musical theater neophytes and non-fans… a hilarious 75 or so minutes of rock ‘n’ roll cheese combined with just enough tawdry narrative.” – Bay Area Reporter
Fame, sex, gratuitous nudity, drug addiction, prostitution, live go-go girls, rock-n-roll, cat fights, murder, seduction, betrayal… and that’s just in the dressing room. Imagine Russ Meyer, Liberace and Charles Manson collaborating on a rock musical starring “Jem and the Holograms” and you have an idea of what awaits you in Above and Beyond the Valley of the Ultra Showgirls. Shamelessly inspired by “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” and “Showgirls”, this over-the-top dark musical comedy has enough poor taste references to keep any B-movie junky erect.
The story follows SUPER VIXEN – a struggling all-girl rock band with big dreams, big boobs, big hair and big everything else. Chablis, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer claw their way up the underside of the music industry where they meet low life record company exec Mr. Richard Face, who promises them super-stardom. When Dick talks Gewürztraminer into leaving her band mates, she changes her name to Sherry, hooks up with even trashier back up girls and becomes an overnight sensation. Naturally, her rejected friends embark on a painful and hilarious downward spiral of sex, drugs… and revenge!
