Imagine moving to a town so conservative that rock music and dancing have been banned. This nightmare scenario serves as the basis for Footloose!, a musical based on the 1984 film starring Kevin Baconthe actor of six degrees of separation fame. And what does that have to do with anything? Well, Musical Theater Villages theatrical version of this classic features live performances of songs written by Kenny Loggins, whose first solo album, Celebrate Me Home, included the single I Believe In Love, which was originally sung by Barbara Streisand in A Star is Born, which co-starred Gary Busey, the wild-eyed and horse-toothed actor who also starred in the hit 90s film Point Break, which was about renegade bank-robber surfers thats loosely basedas in so loose its connection is imperceptibleon the Brotherhood, a group of drug-smuggling surfers whom our own Nick Schou just finished writing a book on. Whew! So, in essence, by simply reading OC Weekly, youre already just six degrees away from seeing this local theater production.
