Tapioca Holiday
loses its flavor
By DAVID WARREN
If you missed this summer's East Quad Players pro-
duction of Zazzuzoo Revue do not miss Tapioca Holi-:
day. It is a carefree show with lots of old music, tacky,
costumes, and bad comedy. If you did see Zazzuzoo and
you want to see it again, see Tapioca, because it is fun-
damentally the same show.
Peter Anderson, the man who brought you Banana
from Outer Space and Zazzuzoo, also wrote Tapioca.:
The problem with this kind of show is that after the
second time, it wears a little thin.
Not that the performers were not good. It is unlike-
ly that there is another group of people with enough
nerve to sing and dance, and tell the type of jokes that
they tell. Judy Goodman will dance her way into your
heart with a rendition of "I've Got Rhythm". But the
format of the show is getting a bit boring.
Some new songs were written by Mark Eisen, musi-
cal director of the show, all in a 1930's vein. They are
cute but they lack something (perhaps originality.)
As far as the comedy is concerned, it is incongru-
ous to bill a show as a carefree walk down memory lane,
and then make sophmoric jokes about contemporary
political themes. They were just out of place.
All in all, this show is good, and a lot of fun to see.
But hopefully this will be the last of these type of
shows. Nostalgia is fun, if done in moderation, but this
is overkill.
Records in review
Former teenage singing idol of the early sixties, Paul Anka
has released a new LP titled simply, Anka (UA-LA314-G). It's
my understanding that some feminist group has actually awarded
Anka a prize for the overt chauvinism expressed on this collec-
tion of bands; or moreover, for the hit single that the AM sta-
tions are currently drilling over the airways: "You're Having
My Baby."
It starts out: "You're having my baby' What a lovely way
of saying how much you love me."
Throughout this album, Anka seems to be afflicted with theI
same pretentious myopia: He perceives everything his woman
does as another expression of how much she loves him, or some-
times vice versa. It is a tried and true theme that at least
some of the public wants to hear again and again.
About the music, what can I say? Anka still maintains that
singing voice that made him the teen scream of 1960 genre. The
melodies are pleasant. The arrangements are painless and}
unoriginal. His style runs back and forth somewhere betweenl
Neil Diamond and Tom Jones.
I imagine the album is aimed, then, for aging, moony house-
wives. Though it is sometimes sensual, it is not a rocker. And
definitely not for the serious listener.

Anrarn at the Ark:
Multifaceted talent

Most musicians think of them-
selves in terms of their par-,
ticular musical genre: they are
jazzmen, "folkies", bluesmen,
or whatever. But for David
Amram, there are no such
walls. He is truly a man for all
musical seasons.
This extraordinary musician,'
who delighted audiences at this
year's Mariposa Folk Festival
in Toronto, will exhibit his di-
verse talents in the second of
two concerts this evening at
8:30 at the Ark.
Described by music critic Nat
fHentoff as "uniquely himself,"E
David Amram has composedj
over 100 orchestral and cham-!
ber music works, has written
two operas, and has done
scores for more than 30 produc-
tions of the New York Shake-
speare Festival. He has also
