Do you remember “Fair is Fair!”? You know the film we all watch on HBO 300 times which starred Helen Slater!!!!
Yes, the cult classic film “Invincible, The Legend of Billie Jean LIVE”
WELL it is NOW a LIVE stage show! I would not tell a lie!!!!
Director/creator of Chico’s Angels Kurt Koehler has taken the iconic 80s film and brought it to the stage at the Cavern Club Celebrity Theater at CASITA DEL CAMPO RESTAURANT.
See fast forward now to 2011. Add in, drag, superstar, sensation, Willam Belli as Billie Jean singing all the hits of rock goddess Pat Benatar, and you have the outrageous brand new rock musical workshop production of “Invincible, The Legend of Billie Jean!”
Fair is Fair was the rebel-rousing cry of sultry 18 year-old Billie Jean Davy and her band of teenage misfits; on the run from the law and in search of truth, justice and a kick-ass haircut! It’s the summer of 1985, Corpus Christi, Texas. Local bully, rich-kid, Hubie Pyatt, has maliciously vandalized the brand new Honda Scooter belonging to dirt poor Binx Davey: a purchase made by the 16 year-old trailer park resident with insurance money left to him by his dead father. (Are you in tears yet?!) It’s up to big sis, Billie, to convince Hubie’s sleazeoid father to cough up the $608 for repairs. Fair is fair, after all!
But things don’t go as planned. After several sweaty moments in Mr. Pyatt’s back room, a gunshot, and a charge of armed robbery; Billie and Binx are furiously fleeing the state with fellow trailer park comrades in tow: 16 year-old, boy-crazy, Ophelia Bray, and precocious tomboy, 14 year-old, Putter Jacks; as well as a more than willing hostage: 17 year-old cutie, Lloyd Muldaur, son of District Attorney, Lloyd Sr. They’re dodging the law, fighting for their rights, saving abused children, and creating eye-popping fashion statements wherever they go! This is the setup of the 1985 cult hit film “The Legend of Billie Jean.”
If you were a kid of the 80’s, then you remember how much you loved it. If not, then you’ll want to find out what has everyone all fired up! So grab your heels, your legwarmers, and your best acid wash jeans, and join us… Relive the legend!
