Go Wig Out!

9 years ago - #NYC#theater

If you live in NYC, you should go see Wig Out! at The Vineyard Theater.

It's a hard show to describe. It helps if you've seen the movie Paris is Burning, since that's kind of the source material. It's essentially a fictional account of a "family" of drag queens competing at a ball in Harlem. There's dancing, singing, performance art, snappy dialogue, high drama, and lots of fantastic drag outfits. And this are not your silly, campy drag queens. These are your hard-code, tough-as-nails, steal-your-credit-card-so-they-can-buy-a-versace-outfit drag queens.

It's playing until November 16th. It's been extended twice. I hope it gets extended again. It's the sort of show that should reach a wider audience.

I often get asked what's currently running in the NYC theater scene, so I decided to put it in a blog post for anyone else that may be interested.
I saw the Roundabout Theatre's production of The Marriage of Bette and Boo. It was a great production and several days after seeing it, I'm still thinking of it quite a bit. It's one of the few plays I think I could see again and again.
