Ian Bell's perennially popular Brown Derby Series
takes on "a screenplay that will drive you Swayze!
" If jokes like that make you want to die, stay far away from Re-bar's three-night run of Dirty Dancing
, the surreally stupid '80s-meets-the-'50s dance flick
reborn here as a trampoline for Bell and company's aggressive camp. Star Andrew Tasakos will undoubtedly illuminate shades of Baby
that Jennifer Grey never dreamed of. (Re-bar, 1114 Howell St, 233-9873. 8 pm, $10 at the door, 21+. Through Wed Jan 18.
