Christ Returns To NYC: RETURN TO GAY GARDENS Comments (0)

IMG_3439Thomas Dekker, Peaches Christ, Jinkx Monsoon, Mink Stole & Bob the Drag Queen

Barely made it to the second sold-out show of Return to Gray Gardens, the one-night-only presentation by Peaches Christ (fresh, arguably, from San Francisco) that spoofed the classique Grey Gardens (1975).

Christ came through with a stellar case, including Thomas Dekker (Heroes, All About Evil), Mink Stole of John Waters infamy and NYC's own Bob the Drag Queen, attempting Onassis realness. Two hunks were on hand to play the Maysles Brothers, who directed the original. (One was doing double-duty as choreographer, werk.)

IMG_3426Lots of pussy on that stage.

Jinkx Monsoon, as Little Edie from the film, was the obvious highlight, but you know that if you saw her Snatch Game appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race, which the bitch won in a walk.

The next time you get a chance to see Jinkx in NYC is in The Vaudevillians: Bringing Up Baby May 21—24, 2015, at the Laurie Beechman. The first one was BRILLIANT.

She's Got A Squeezebox And She's Gonna Use It: Judy Tenuta @ The Laurie Beechman Comments (1)

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: *** out of ****

Ten observations about Judy Tenuta, whose show Full Frontal Tenudity is playing at the Laurie Beechman in NYC tonight:

Judy-Tenuta-6One of my favorite one-offs was when she said, "Glory, glory hole-ellujah."

Judy-Tenuta-7(1) She looks the same 25 years after I first heard of her.

(2) Some of her jokes are the same 25 years after I first heard of her...but they're still funny.

(3) She's surprisingly topical, referencing Ke$ha (she even said it as "Ke$ha" and not "Kesha"), Beyoncé, Eliot Spitzer and Chris Christie. "The Love Goddess" was played on to the strains of Selena Gomez & The Scene's "Love You Like a Love Song."

(4) She takes audience participation to a new level; I think I was the only person in the house she didn't drag onstage.

(5) Her impression of Rita Rudner is more delicious than the Beechman's chocolate banana pudding.

(6) She implicitly rips her ex, Emo Phillips (they were married!), a new one with jokes about how it wouldn't take a very long jail sentence to get him to flip to guys.

(7) She marries a gay couple on stage.

(8) She has her hair done by a random gay audience member onstage.

(9) Yes, she recreates her Sarah Palin impersonation.

(10) Madonna's "Hung Up" is one of her jams.

Judy-Tenuta-4Pole, dancing: The queen of audience participation.

To sum it up, Tenuta is like a female Rip Taylor—her humor is obvious, but is like comfort food. And she is way more clever than her physical humor sometimes is. The woman is totally at ease improvising and nursed guffaws out of lines that might have passed for ordinary conversation without the right delivery.

Judy-Tenuta-1Judy, Judy, Judy!

Judy-TenutaAfter her show, which threatened to overlap with The Vaudevillians (I ran into Jinkx Monsoon, who was in a full-on blonde goddess summer look...just to walk to the theater and then change for her show!) it went on so long (the equivalent of a Big Gulp), Tenuta signed autographs and sold books upstairs. When we met, she embraced me like she knew me and called me adorable and wanted to know if I liked. I liked! I asked her her secret, telling her she looks ageless, and she said it's all about laughter. "Also, I have a wonderful mom. She's in heaven already, though." It was touching in the context of her out-there, anything-for-a-laugh personality, but that's probably why her fans love her—she's rarely mean (one Paris Jackson jibe aside) and clearly has heart.

Check out Judy's book Full Frontal Tenudity.

WIN IT: Tickets To Jinkx Monsoon's THE VAUDEVILLIANS Comments (8)


Kevin-harrisI've got a pair of tickets for The Vaudevillians, a musical comedy co-starring composer Major Scales and RuPaul's Drag Race victor/victoria Jinkx Monsoon!

To enter, comment this blog with your favorite show (TV, theater, movie) featuring drag of all time. I'll pick 1 of you to win at random! (You must get yourself to the show. Do not enter unless you'll be available during the show's run of July 9—August 22 at NYC's Laurie Beachman Theatre.)


Throughout the 1920's Kitty Witless and Dr.Dan Von Dandy toured speakeasies and burlesque theaters through the United States as THE VAUDEVILLIANS, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. Unfortunately, one day, tragedy struck. While touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow - instantly freezing them alive. But thanks to global warming, they recently thawed out only to discover, that pop artists of various decades had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Much to their shock and chagrin, songs including "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (which was originally about the woman's Suffragette movement), and "Drop it Like it's Hot" (which was originally about the invention of the electric iron) had become hits for lesser artists. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their original music, performing it as originally composed.

Jinkx Monsoon is the alter ego of Jerick Hoffer, who graduated with a degree in theatrical performance from Cornish College in Seattle. With ten years experience on stage, Hoffer is a seasoned Portland-born entertainer who has captured the attention of his native northwest region. As early as 2006, Hoffer appeared as the lead dancer in the world's largest drag queen chorus line, which made the Guinness Book of World Records. By 2012, he had advanced to roles in Seattle theaters, playing Moritz in "Spring Awakening" (produced by Balagan Theatre) and Angel in "Rent" (produced by The 5th Avenue Theatre). Earlier this year, Hoffer played Hedwig in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (produced by Balagan Theatre and Seattle Theatre Group).

According to Hoffer, the creation of Jinkx was complicated. "From the movie Death Becomes Her, I was inspired by the crazy extent vain women will go for eternal youth, beauty, and power. Through Lucille Ball I saw how a woman can bring you to tears with laughter with nothing more than a look. Through the Disney villains I was raised with, I saw how powerful a woman can be, and yet so deliciously evil. And through my mom, I saw not only the trials and tribulations a single mother faces every day, but also the strength and determination a woman can possess when she is trying to provide a bright future for her children."
