Lilith
with Jean Seberq, Warren Beatty,
Peter Fonda
Lilith, in ancient Babylonian my-
tholo6v, was the female embodi-
ment of total "evil"-and free-
dom. In Robert Rossen's film
based onh. R. Salamanca'sgothic
novel, she "wants to leave the
mark of her desire on every living
creature in the world."

By LAURIE HARRIS clothes (ooh la la!) and the
dlirt innuendoes-

Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
was transformed into a latter
day Minsky's as Soph Show's
Can-Can took to the aisles and
stage.
Abe Burrows' play is about a
lascivious little night club in
Montmartre when dancing the
Can Can and other lewd tricks
simply weren't allowed. But La
Mome Pistache and her dancing
girls eventually win the heart
of Judge Aristide Forestier who
is exposed as 'the secret vice
lord of Montmartre' at the
Quatz' Arts Ball. The justice
minded Aristide turns the oc-
casion into a test case and the
Can-Can wins in the end.
Unfortunately, it takes clear
through the first act for Can-
Can to wake up and get kicking.
Cynthia Sebstad as Claudine and
Frank Begun as her Bulgarian
artist-boyfriend, Boris Adzinid-
zinadze form the subplot, which
controls the first portion of the
play in which Boris' carica-
ture of the frenzied, irrational
artist is the only good point.
But it is not strong enough to
keep the play rolling.
If you loved me truly' towards
the end of the act brings the
dancing and singing ability of
the cast to the fore. The chore-
ography becomes alive and the
zany artists and girls of Mont-
martre do also.
. Sebstad has the fragile beauty
needed for her innocent role as
Claudine, but she does not have
the spirit, eventually causing

The play does, however, have
its slow moments - like scene
changes, and there are an ob-
vious plethora of them. Director
Robert Colby should simply have
admitted that scenes do change
and expose them to the lights
and the audience, all the while
keeping the action going.
The choreography, by Kathy
Hamby, is a spirited invention
to include the audience and not

to supercede the ability of her
chorus. In fact, the chorus -
males included - was extremely
agile especially in the 'Apache'
scene of desperadoes flinging
their 'woman' roughly over the
stage.
As the show draws to its heel-
kicking climax the Can-Can
barrels its way into the court-
room. Girls rush down the aisles
rustling skirts, flailing tails
behind, swinging their legs and
doing only what they can-can.

Debby Peckham, as the moth-
ering and enterprising Pistache,
encompasses the show with her
voluminous voice sometimes in
the style of Ethel Merman (but
thankfully always on key). Her
warm smile and not-so-furtive
flirting come over nicely when
she does not become too dra-
matically involved with her
songs. And from the moment
Aristide (D. T o b y Marwill)
walks on stage it is Louis Jour-
dan-tall, lean-faced and slight-
ly, but not offensively, off key.
Marwill needs to bring a little
spirit into his too controlled
voice, but he does well as the
prim, virtuous man of law.
And the award for the Best
