The Deuce does duty to “global warming” this August with a May/December – more like April/February!! – (g)ro(an)mance on the grimy streets of 1983 NYC in Rafal (“Screwballs”/”Loose Screws”) Zielinski’s HEY BABE! aka BABA! aka just BABE!
12-year-old Broadway wanna-be (Yasmine Bleeth, in her debut) butts heads and “hooks up” with hoofer has-been booze-hound BUDDY HACKETT!! Stealing, strip-teasing, roller skating!! Show tunes and smelly socks! A surrealistic ride to the edge of good taste – and then over it!! Head-scratchingly strange… wildly wrongheaded… wholly wackadoo fun!! See this wonderful weirdness unfurl before your disbelieving eyes at The Deuce!!
