Wed., May 40, 1970 GREELEY TRIBUNE Page 25 Theater Week By WILLIAM GLOVER AP Drama Critic NEW YORK (AP) - A musical collage about uheUo life, "The Me Nobody Knows," arrived Monday night at off-Broadway's OrpheUm Theater, a bit too slick for its own good. The text spoken by a dozen youthful performers is taken from a paperback anthology of l o w n lnat started the vogue. The - Â·- effect is recognizable but regrettable, like a boogaloog session in leisure village. Out of "Garganlua and Panta- gruel" and sundry other pieces by Rabelais, Barrault has con- bawdy, over-talky episodes that schoolwork by the 7 to 18 age group in New York slum districts. Well enough, in its mixture of naive wonder and bitter awareness of disadvantage. But 17 hard rock numbers, composed by Gary William Friedman, with lyrics by Will Holt, form the largest part of the somewhat unclassifiablc affair. They are entitled to their liberal opinions, but having the kids moulh adult sentiments in to-and-fro succession hardly enhances admiration for the underlying purpose of the production. The group of performers is certainly enthusiastic, with certain diction problems for the very youngest, all hough nobody's clarity is helped by echoes bouncing all over the narrow auditorium from overwrought loud-speakers. The Robert H. Livingston staging relies on grouping players so that spots can dramatically pick them out as fhey percli on Clarke Dunham's tenement setting. Stan Goldberg and Jeanne Livingston trick up the decor with pictorial projections. "The Me Nobody Knows" is a 15 minute show that lasts two hours. NEW YORK (AP) - Jean- Louis Barrault and his French cohorts tackle a couple of big theatrical challenges in "Rabelais," which arrived Tuesdayjyoulh.

A rescue flotilla of gunboats coded a conglomeration of sailed up the Mekong River to lishment decorum as represented by priest, lawyer and warrior. Most of the imagery is for pendants. For contrast, the lively cast that romps about in a motley of current garb and Mardi Gras disguise explores those sexual- anal episodes most closely identified with the adjective Rabelaisian. Although the production has gathered heady acclaim during previous stops on intercontinental travels, apparently for daring and originality, all of the running up and down aisles, flashing spotlights in spectators' eyes, blaring sound and other devices can't atone for the core boredom of the repetitious extravaganza. For the sake of customers whose sense of French doesn't include gutter vernacular, an improved instant translation device is available, with Faubion Bowers giving all the Anglo- Saxon equivalents.
