This Week in Theatre by Harvey Krelm

Creeping Jesus and the Couch of Shame by Roland Muce

Taps Theatre
185 53rd Street

Clocking in at just under 5 minutes, you would think that the new play by the author of the off Broadway hit "Don't Squeeze So Hard" has alot to say in so little time. However, due to the fact that the play is excruciatingly awful, it feels like an eternity has passed by the time you stumble out of the theatre and vomit onto the street.
"Clowns." said patron Clyde Hemp. "That's all I remember. Just clowns. Where was Jesus, where was the couch? I sure as hell didn't see one!"
By the time the Spanish galleon sailed off to save the elephants from the Glue King, most had already left the 1930s style Taps Theatre and were standing about on the street or hurling themselves into traffic.
This is one reporter who won't be seeing Muce's next effort, as I have put my own eyes out.
"Teasing the Pickle" opens in August, running time 17 hours.
