FOGGY NOTION: Farcical take on film noir 'Adrift in Macao' comes to the Tabard Theatre

Danger, romance, puns and quips await Loreena and Rick in the streets, docks and nightclubs of Macao, China, in 1952. An enigmatic villain and murder mystery only adds to the musical’s affectionate parody of 1940s and ’50s Hollywood film noir classics. From “Mambo Malaysian” to “Mister McGuffin,” the catchy tunes and lyrics by Peter Melnick and Christopher Durang feature hysterically ridiculous flair. Director Doug Baird’s fast-paced, farcical and shenanigan-filled Bay Area premiere of the 2007 Drama Desk award-nominated musical runs through May 6. (KL)
