radical,new, Baltimore Premiere piece of Musical Theatre
Written by the young newcomers Maggie-Kate Coleman (book and lyrics) and Anna K. Jacobs (music), “Pop!” does its energetic best to simulate the freewheeling fun of the Factory while positioning the speed queens and superstars within the tidy frame of a musical comedy. Cleverly conceived, vividly performed and professionally put together, it has moments of dizzy brilliance. But ultimately and probably inevitably, “Pop!” comes across as canned camp, as have so many other attempts to replay the crazy late-1960s groove on stage and film. In trying to show both the madcap excesses and the psychic cost of Warhol freakdom, the show turns these fabled figures into alternately cute and cranky cartoons.
