Fundamentalist Christians like to quote the bible verbatim when asked about the Lord’s stance on homosexuality. But they tend to ignore its other dictums, like how to sell your daughter into slavery. “Sodomites!!! A Musical of Biblical Proportions” is Annoyance Productions’ hopelessly warped look at the Bible, and man’s equally warped translation.
Homophobic Lot and his daughters are the only people to make it out of Sodom alive. We find out why and explore God’s laws as his angels interview the Sodomites. Director Sean Cusick keeps the funny coming fast; he and adaptor James Asmus’ number questioning Leviticus is a show stand-out. Chris Witaske is suitably blue as Lot; Mike Descoteaux’s music and lyrics are sharp, irreverent and blasphemously catchy.
If you’re a person of faith, stay home. If you’re a person of faith (or an atheist or agnostic) with a brain and a sense of humor, buy a ticket. (Lisa Buscani)
