You heard right, folks, the musical version of the Debbie Does Dallas, a classic porn film from 1978, returns to New York City for a limited run. The show opened Aug. 6 and will continue through Aug. 9. The musical was briefly on Off-Broadway in 2002 staring Sherie Rene Scott.

5th Floor Productions is presenting this risqué piece, which will run at Teatro Circulo and will be sure to delight its cult following with evening and late night performances running at 7 PM and 9:30 PM.

The show is directed by Nikki DiLoreto and stars Mikah Horn as Debbie. The cast features Stefanie Miller, Katie Perpall, Nicole Hale, Megan Fleming, Matthew Paul Hill, Michael Gioia, Charlie Stoop, Parker Krug and Chris Rehmann.

Debbie Does Dallas is the story of a talented cheerleader captain, Debbie Benton, who enlists the help of her squad to try to raise money to get to Dallas in order to fulfill her dream of joining a professional squad. Debbie receives a letter in the mail telling her that she has a shot to join a major cheerleading team. Her teammates form a company called Teen Services and get jobs to raise funds for Debbie to make it to Dallas and live her dream. Unfortunately, these jobs just don't cut it, so they decide to perform "little favors" calling themselves"good girls." The musical is based on the 1970's porn film, but doesn't contain sex or nudity.

The story was created by Susan L. Schwartz. Erica Schmidt adapted the concept. This show features the musical stylings of Andrew Sherman as well as some bonus music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Jonathan Callicutt. Back in 2002, the show was produced for Off-Broadway by the Araca Group and ran at the Jane Street Theatre.

Come on down and see the cheerleaders work their Texan magic at Teatre Circulo 64 E. 4th Street. The show runs from Aug. 6-Aug.9. Tickets are $20 general admission. For more information, visit 5thFloor.org.
