Judy Garland was dead . . . someone had to pay!
Do you think drag queens are revolting? Damn right they are! See Albuquerque's favorite drag troupe THE DOLLS in this brand-new production directed by Russell Maynor. Revolting Drag Queens is a hilarious, shocking, and poignant look at the Stonewall Riots of 1969, a seminal event in the gay civil-rights movement.
It took a bunch of drag queens to put their foot down against the routine, persecutory gay bar raids of the 1960's . . . and when that foot is wearing a stiletto heelâ€”watch out! The play follows three drag queens (Pandora Spox, Lady Eve, & Ginger Hale) during the five-year period just before (1965) and just after (1970) Stonewall. It's an evening of music, laughter, and fashion as only THE DOLLS can deliver.
The cast features the talents of THE DOLLS, including Geneva Convention and Tequila Mockingbyrd. A.J. Carian will be appearing as the fresh-faced and new-to-the-scene Ginger Hale. The cast is rounded out with both new and familiar faces including London Turner playing the spiritual mother of the Stonewall riots herself: Judy Garland!
There's nothing like waging war in high couture! This play is suitable for ages 17 and up.
