In the Chesapeake Music Hall's production of the hilarious burlesque revue "Sugar Babies," Dan Higgs is the "Top Banana" literally and figuratively.As the baggy-pants, naughty-boy comic who dominates the show's old-time skits and routines, his is a side-splitting presence from start to finish.Whether playing a foul-mouthed school boy, an oversexed countess in drag, or a lecherous judge trying to put the long arms of the law around a sultry blonde defendant, Mr. Higgs is there, scoring with facial takes, kibbitzing with the audience and breaking up his supporting cast in the process.

August, hurricane season. We're all out on the porch with a pile of steamed crabs, swatting mosquitoes and telling stories. I tell the one about Hurricane Hazel in 1954, and how I had to walk a mile through 50-mph wind gusts with my little sister Corinne in hand. Corinne, who is a grandmother now, rolls her eyes and accuses me of "creative recall." Everyone laughs. My husband quips that I've joined the ranks of oldsters who tell exaggerated "walking miles in bad weather" stories. Everyone laughs again, my children the loudest.

As a middle-vintage baby boomer, I'm too young to have seen burlesque . . . err . . . in the flesh, but I sure got a delightful dose of it at the Annapolis Dinner Theater's production of "Sugar Babies."Sexy, incessant, unsubtle, anarchic, off-color, peppy, physical -- pick an adjective you like and enjoy, because this is a show and a cast that will "give ya that boom-boom right in the eye" and leave you wanting more.The "Top Banana" emcee role in "Sugar Babies" is truly a license to steal, and Dan Higgs is a larcenist of the first order.
