June 8 thru July 7:
“Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” and “Sleeping Beauty or Coma” by Charles Busch.
One of the longest-running off-Broadway shows in history!
A nubile Virgin Sacrifice is seduced by a hard-boiled Succubus and left for dead in the deserts of ancient Sodom. Vowing revenge, the spunky Sacrifice chases the Succubus throughout history, from 1920s Hollywood to 1990s Las Vegas. “Lesbians” is paired with a fabulous parody of the classic fairy tale: Set in swinging 60's London, witness the glorious rise of Enid Wetwhistle from giddy receptionist to world-famous supermodel.
Directed by Dave Barton.
* This production will have performances on Thursday, June 28 and Thursday, July 5
and NO Performance on Sunday, June 10
