British Invade Saddle West by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer Saddle West's showroom was the scene of a British inva- sion Saturday and Sunday nights of this past Memorial Day weekend. Only this invasion didn't involve guns, instead the weapons of choice were music and time warp. Spearheading this Brit beachhead was a band known as Backbeat. They are imitators of the English mop-top four, the Beatles. Even though "Backbeat" is an impersonator band, they put on a show that would have turned John Lennon lime green with envy. The show starts with early Beatles music and rood dress and goes through the Sgt. Pepper era, to the Abbey Road time. Costuming for the Sgt. Pepper part of the production could best be described as military circus silk. However, the music is what the small but enthusiastic audience came to hear and that is what they got. From Rubber Soul to the White Album and beyond they rocked with the mersey beat, in a performance that was true to the originals. The only problem with this production was the size of the "Larger than Life," More Chuckle than Belly Laugh by Barney Basin Gazette Staff "Larger than Life" is not your typical Bill Murray film. Actually, Murray is so subdued in this production that he is almost the straightest member of the cast. Of course when your co-star tips the scales at four tons it's smart to let her take the laughs. In this flick Murray plays a highly successful motivational speaker who receives a large inheritance from a father he didn't know even existed. It seems that Murray's film parents had split up when he was a little boy because the father was irresponsible. What do irresponsible, rootless men become ? Traveling circus clowns, of course. Only this one traveled with an elephant and it's this pachyderm that becomes the post-death present. Murray must embark on a 3,000-mile cross-country jour- ney in order to sell this bundle of fun to the highest bidder. It's this cast of crazed cargo chauffeurs, colorful circus creations, and crazy citizenry that aid, abet and hinder the way that makes this story. Matthew McConaughey is side-spitting in his perfor- mance of the most terrifying trucker to interact on the inter- state. Even with all the this zaniness going on Murray seems to pass through it and leave the audience with a warm fuzzy feeling for this relationship between a man and his elephant. This PG-rated film is the type that is entertainment for the entire family.

A show of this quality should have packed the Saddle West showroom, it didn't. If the citizens of Pahrump continue to treat theatre with what is being known as the infamous Pahrumpian apathy, performers will avoid this town in the future for lack of support. 00tmT mt.00.sn !
