Oh! Calcutta! by Kenneth Tynan. "Some time ago," said the British drama critic Kenneth Tynan in an article in the Village Voice, "it occurred to me that there was no place for a civilized man to take a civilized woman to spend an evening of civilized erotic stimulation. At one end, there's burlesque, at the other, an expensive night club, but no place in between. We're trying to fill that gap with this show."

In Oh! Calcutta! Mr. Tynan has assembled a group of sketches which deal with almost every conceivable erotic fantasy and sexual reality that Western man has dreamt up or experienced. The distinguished roster of authors includes Samuel Beckett, Edna O'Brien, Jules Feiffer, Leonard Melfi, John Lennon, and, not to be outdone, Kenneth Tynan him-self.

The title of this revue, which is taken from the title of a painting by the French Surrealist painter Clovis Trouille, contains a phonetic French pun: "Oh! Quelle — — — t'as!" Or, freely translated: "Oh! What a lovely - - - you have!"
