Boobs on the brain. Body positivity is a huge theme in this play, and Bannow takes time to sing about and celebrate every type of body. Halfway through, a small puppet is thrown on stage, and she attaches its hands to her chest.
From there on, the puppet clings to her breasts, and she throws it around by the end of the song. This hilarious image is later used again, when she plays a Russian mother who has many hungry mouths and all the milk in the world to feed them with. One of her monkeys hangs from her chest as she sings about the wonder of breast milk.
The visual gag is little less funny the second time, but remains amusing enough to elicit loud laughter. Throughout the play, she boob critics together the narratives of several characters whose obsession with boobs led them to Boobtropolis. The meat of the story is unsupported with silly hijinks of random characters.
At one point in the second act, we encounter a doctor who confesses a secret love of wearing fake breasts.
The doctor gives no meaning to the story, other than to provide a funny song about a man who inexplicably needs to wear breasts to feel good. Maybe if his motivation was explained, it would be more enjoyable. Ultimately, it comes across as a self-indulgent, empty scene with no real purpose. The show is bountiful in its many colorful ideas, but these metaphorical breasts need a better-fitting bra.
In the first act, a mother sings boob critics the deep and beautiful connection she feels with her baby when she breastfeeds him. Although Bannow depicts multiple characters with admirable fluidity, perhaps the most interesting characters are the audience members.
Its a perky performance that nips at your heartstrings with tender moments, but milks its jokes and sometimes sags. At the end, Bannow is saved through the encouragement of the women who came before her.
Like two nipples in the cold, I was alert and fully aware of what was before me. I left feeling empowered and uplifted, with a swell feeling in my chest. Contact the columnist at [ protected].
