'Fatale' attraction 

Ready for a return engagement? "Femmes Fatale," the Club Juana theatrical revue that was staged last spring to challenge Seminole County's anti-nudity ordinance, is once again on the marquee at the Casselberry establishment. The first -- and hopefully not the last -- performance is scheduled for March 1. What can the eager public expect this time around? "All the original script is there," says writer/director Morris Sullivan, "with some restructuring and reorganizing." When asked if anything new has been added, Sullivan pauses, then lets out a sly laugh. "Well, there's a vignette that's largely adapted from Judge Eaton's opinion," says Sullivan. That would be Circuit Judge O.H. Eaton's ruling that Femmes Fatale, as bona fide art, fits through the ordinance's loophole. Sullivan says the new part includes a fake cop measuring the women's nipple tape, a discussion of freedom of expression, "then they break into song." Sounds like a hit to us. But after all, we loved the "South Park" movie.
