On many people’s “top picks” for the weekend is the musical comedy, Camp Wanatachi: A New Musical About Sex, God and Summer Camp, which opens tonight at LaMaMa. It was a favorite at the 2009 Fringe Festival and is back with a full-fledged run at the Ellen Stuart Theater. The Village Voice notes, “Christian camp can be enlightening—and not just in a religious sort of way. The summer humidity swirling with adolescent pheromones in those sex-segregated cabins can be a dangerous combo, contributing to more than one sexual awakening over the long history of sleep-away camp. That’s exactly the setting in which 14-year-old Jana and Titi meet in Camp Wanatachi, an electro-musical by Natalie Elizabeth Weiss and Bekah Brunstetter that grapples with the intersection of the young girls’ religious and sexual identities.”
