Adrift In Macao (musical) (lyrics, songs)

Christopher Durang wrote the book and lyrics for this musical, and Peter Melnick (a native of Ukraine) – wrote a very interesting music, under the direction of Jonathan Goldberg. All choreography was on Stephen Terrell, with which he did a fine job.

This musical is a noir staging, which, apart from situation comedy, involves a lot more elements that affect the basest and most primitive instincts of people – laughing because of obviously ridiculous situations, people and events. The book is written by one of the most amusing playwrights who takes care even with a bad plot, filling the stage with ongoing jokes, sparkling humor and incendiary characters.

All critics compose the praises to this story and the execution. For example, Boston Phoenix wrote: "The whole surroundings in which we are immersed – with beautiful women, a parody of the Eastern Man named Tempura (translated as shrimp – editor's note), with opium addicts, with the owners of go-go clubs and other clandestine brothels – created thanks to this wonderful Broadway show". Highly noted by the ability to make music – all praise Peter Melnick, who accurately and clearly feels the atmosphere.

In general, it should be said that this is a parody on the movies of Hollywood of period of 1940 – 1960, where there were more laughter because of the absurdity of the situation, rather than because of the great humor. And there were beautiful women and men too.
