Review: 'Animals out of Paper'


Ron Spencer and J. Nicholas Shoemaker, Indianapolis

3 stars

For all those who have wondered (and who hasn't?) what Jesus

was like in high school, there is this goofball musical confection concocted by

TOTS' Ron Spencer and J. Nicholas Shoemaker, featuring an onslaught of

one-liners calibrated to keep the audience alternately groaning and guffawing.

The show begins with John the Baptist, his head on a platter that looks left

over from a Rotary Club buffet, telling of the Messiah's coming of age. It

figures the kid's career placement exam score was off the charts.
