Two best friends seek glory at the crash-up derby (which I think is the same as a demolition derby). One runs into a Bluto-ish rival while lusting after a '72 Buick. The Buick might hold magical charms, which are coveted by a pair of devious, sexed-up sisters. Crashes. Powers. Hookers. Death. Revenge. Would you expect anything less from a hair metal musical? Chariots of Rubber could very well usher in a new genre of subtlety-free theater. It is the brainchild of Jeffrey Wonderful, a pillar of Portland's agro-arts community, contributor to the satirical Portland Organic Wrestling ring, and co-founder of the Rose-City Rollers.
