holes in these socks

in the summer of 1968 I saw Butterfly McQueen in an off-Broadway musical calld "Curley McDimple." new friends Richard Nelson & Mark Saunders calld the crop of low-budget shows then on the downtown boards "dirty socks musicals."

I rememberd their line last nite when I watchd "Reefer Madness." I never saw this dirty socks musical on stage but the tv adaptation was tiresome (even tho the budget must've been many times that of the stage show).

the only thing this had going for it was Christian Campbell who is adorable. one hopes he appears in a better musical. & Ana Gasteyer had a moment and a half. at least she's going into the tour of "Wicked."
