      Having produced the musicals Annie (twice!); Annie 2 ; It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman and even Kudzu , and now the first major revival of Li'l Abner , the Goodspeed Opera House might as well proudly rename itself the Goodspeed Funny-Pages House. (Hey, the 1983 Doonesbury musical deserves another look, guys, and didn't Mickey Rooney spend decades developing a Maggie & Jiggs show? Get on it.)

      The renowned social-satire comic strip by New Haven native Al Capp hit Broadway in late 1956, featuring Edie Adams as the Abner-lovin' Daisy Mae, Tina Louise as the Abner-cheatin' villainess Appassionata von Climax, and Julie Newmar as Stupefyin' Jones, whose knock-out figure can stop any man in his tracks. No revival could hope to match such a pantheon of pulchritude, so Goodspeed amusingly relies on rubber padding to enhance the busts and backsides of its womenfolk. Rest assured that the sexism stretches both ways: When a cadre of slobbish Dogpatch husbands gets jolted by bodybuilding Yokumberry tonic, they suddenly sport perky buttocks.
