Showgirls: The Best Movie Ever Made Ever

I'm on the UCB mailing list, and apparently this show is going on yet again, for (if I've read the mailing lists correctly), the third time. Amazing. The ad reads the following:

SHOWGIRLSThe Best Movie Ever Made. Ever.
“Her name is Nomi Malone…”

Ten years ago, our modern day Shakespeare, Joe Eszterhas, was paid $2 million for his screenplay Showgirls. Despite being considered one of the worst movies ever made by critics and movie-goers, it went on to become one of the top 20 grossing films in MGM history. And in America, that qualifies it as a work of high art.

The UCB Theatre is proud to present an evening with Mr. Eszterhas as he is interviewed by noted film historian (Cape Cod Community College) and Mary Kay spokeswoman, Jackie Swett Miller. Experience the power and sanctity of Eszteras' words live onstage. It’s half staged reading, half “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” and half female empowerment, Eszterhas style.
“It must be weird, not having anybody cum on you.”
Directed by Jason Mantzoukas
Cast: Eric Bernat, Julie Brister, Jackie Clarke, Jesse Falcon, John Flynn, Jeff Hiller, Bobby Moynihan, Lennon Parham
With special guest appearance from Michael Musto.
