Members say: Entertaining, Clever, Hilarious, Funny, Raunchy

About the show

Dragcapella beauty shop quartet, The Kinsey Sicks return to New York and Soho Playhouse with this ribald, ridiculous, raunchy, and decidedly R-rated romp through the best and worst of Christmas.

... Read more

In this deliciously blasphemous holiday musical, The Kinsey Sicks try to sell their 2000-year-old manger before it's foreclosed. Crises arise, Jewish-Gentile tensions surface, and mayhem ensues - in outrageous drag, and glorious 4-part harmony.

Theater Pizzazz

“In the mood for smart, sassy humor delivered by an outstanding a cappella ensemble? Had it with ho-hum holiday dramaturgy? Get thee to Soho. The Kinsey Sicks, America’s favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet, has created a holiday musical comedy full of wit, ingenuity and lipstick…Founding member Ben Schatz (Rachel) has penned a treasure trove of facetiously clever lyrics: sophisticated, scatological, bawdy, and shrewd…As fine an a cappella group as any I’ve heard.” Full Review


for a previous production "A show that is sure to provide relief with bawdy humor and outrageous musical numbers...While 'Oy Vey' has a plot, it's a thin one and basically serves as a setup for the jokes and songs. Both of which are filled with double entendres and one-liners, performed with great timing and harmonic perfection...Several of the politically charged songs were not only funny, but also quite astute...Four melodic ladies and enough humor to take the edge off a stressful season." Full Review

The Washington Post

for a previous production "The four members of the well-known 'dragapella beautyshop quartet' once again sing outrageous, raunchy remakes of holiday songs and indulge in campy patter. But this time, a portion of the talk and music reflects the age of Trump...No sacred cow is too delicate for this foursome to rope into a rodeo of spoofery...Each member of the quartet displays a distinctive, if equally glittery, personality...The characters’ personalities dovetail artfully with the show’s topicality." Full Review

DC Metro Theater Arts

for a previous production "In a show featuring stomach-bursting, cringe-worthy jokes, The Kinsey Sicks put on an uproariously hilarious, musically-infused Chanukah-Christmas mashup that left a venue full of twisted parodies and crushed funny-bones...The envelope-shredding Kinsey Sicks are a study in outrageousness...In between the singing, there were double entendres and jokes galore...The packed house gave the Sicks a well-deserved standing ovation for a raunchy-good time."
