"Bemoan not the fate of the musical revue. This beautifully-crafted show could almost singlehandedly revitalize the art form.

Fred Silver's dazzling scars, with its melodic inventiveness and witty, intelligent lyrics, establishes him among the finest of the current crop

of composers for the musical theatre. Funny lady Sue Lawless has elicited splendid performances from the strong cast, including Candice Earley, Rick Gardner, Cola Pinto, Gordon Ramsey, and Robert Tananis, while pianists John Franceschina and Dennis Buck set an unflagging musical pace.

The homosexual humor, tram a transvestite policeman's lament ("Being a cOP can be a drag") 10 the plight of four stalwart firemen ("We musn't have a fairy on the force"), is sensitively, lovingly, and tastefully handled throughout the ail-tao-brief evening, It's the best thing to happen to Gay Lib in a long time

NIGHT LIFE

'In Gay Company'

One reason revues have been out of fashion for the last decade or so Is that politics and world events - which used to be staple subjects for sketches and songs - have so out .. distanced the revue mentality. Clever rhymes and Innocent ditties are somehow Inappropriate to subjects no longer Innocent

"In Gay Company" succeeds because homosexuality Is stll! a subject that, lor the average audience, Is provocative and, even for gay audiences, does not require militant ultraseriousness of treatment It Is a subject that can stili accornmodate a rhyme Ilke "La Forza del Destlnc" with "If you haven't lost your maraschino" and thus appeals to giddy Ilghtheaded revue lovers, gay or straight

Fred Slivers' materiel ranges from dellghttully silly, like a song about "A Fairy In the Fire House" 10 poignant - a

sketch about a chance lovers who reminisce witty, like a basically and his lHelong analr

r Fred Silver received his Bachelor of Music degree from Boston University and a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree from The Juilliard School of Music, where he won the Rodgers and Hammerstein Award as outstanding composer for the musical theater, the very first time it was offered by Juilliard.

He composed the music for the show "For Heaven's Sake," which has had thousands of performances throughout tte world, as well as the music for "Hannah" and "Like It Is."

His first attempt at writing his own lyrics was "Twelve Days After Christmas," which was performed by Carol Burnett and has sold hundreds of thousands of copies.

At present, he is part of the piano duo team of "DeMaio and Silver," with many successful concert appearances to their credit.

Fred has written many choral works which have been acclaimed by music educators.

He has also privately coached and trained some of the best known actors and musical comedy performers of the Broadway stage: Roddy MacDOWell, Barbara Barrie, Penny Fuller, Sandy Duncan, E, G. Marshall, Pat Hingle, Gloria Swanson, Betty Hutton, Rose Mary Murphy, June Havoc, and Howard Duff, among others"

He has recently completed Kaye Ballard's new nightclub act and is working on a forth-
