This is the remarkable true story of four friends from San Francisco who had a life-changing epiphany at a Bette Midler concert that led them to form The Kinsey Sicks in an effort to find joy during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis. Now that the era of Trumpism is upon us, they’re sharing their hilarious, inspiring and at times heartbreaking tale, and showing that hatred and deceit can be fought with humor and heart.
This show has garnered mid-show ovations across the US, and has been an Off-Broadway hit at New York’s fabled SoHo Playhouse. Critics have described the show as “powerful,” “provocative,” “delicious,” “subversive,” “hilarious,” “stirring,” “exquisite,” “electric,” “outrageous," “heartbreaking," “brave,” “mesmerizing,” “flawless,” “superb," "incredibly moving,” ”inventively diabolical,” “riotously funny,” "vitally significant,” “an absolute must watch," and "theater its BEST"!
So come join America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet as they lead us all in resisting these new dark times with laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair in an unforgettable new musical exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong vegetables and, of course, Bette Midler.
