Dedicated to Jon Lighter.

 From the review in the Boston Globe today of "The Donkey Show"
(American Repertory Theater's transliteration of "A Midsummer Night's
Dream" into the disco world of the 70s), by Don Aucoin:

"The part of Bottom is conflated into two guys named Vinnie, who look
and act like characters out of 'Saturday Night Fever.'"
