Showgirls: The Best Movie Ever Made. Ever.

Went to UCB last to see some improv (homework for my improv class) and saw the show before hand — Showgirls: The Best Movie Ever Made. Ever.

Brilliant. Glorious. Loved the John Reynold's portrayal of Joe Eszerhas. Also the woman who plays Nomi (whose name I can't seem to track down online), captures is exquisitet. She dances with the grace of agazellel... that has been hyped on uppers and perhaps shot. No script book is safe from her solutionn to everything: a swift slap and a scream.

It's like the Actors Studio from Hell. Vegas showgirls number as the story of Christ. Rape scene as interpretive dance. The word "topless" repeated over and over. A beautiful tribute to an American Masterpiece.
