Relevant, Clever, Funny, Broad (no pun intended), Well sung

See it if you enjoy drag and a cappella. The songs' lyrics are terrific--funny and insightful. The book isn't as good. The four singers are talented.

Don't see it if you want only light fare; TYSS gets heavy w/an AIDS monologue. Some parts are raunchy (lots of swearing). Audience participation. Read more

Deeply moving, Hilarious, Relevant, Intelligent, Queer fierce!

See it if You lived through the plague years are part of the LGBTQ family or like a good drag show! These girls remind you how FABULOUS being gay is!!

Don't see it if You’re homophobic or republican...or as is usually the case...both.

July 24th, 2017
For a previous production

“While the group freely admits to being aggressively political, you do wonder why a band of such inventively diabolical brains couldn’t find a less self-indulgent way to memorialize a tragic episode…Along with Rachel and Trixie, Trampolina (Brown) and Winnie (Marken) sing robustly and kid expertly. And they are determined for you to hear what they think...They flow with the currents of 2017. And amid the glitter, the frills and the banter, they’re meant to be taken seriously.

For a previous production

"They wisely combine parodies and self-deprecating material with strong social and political themes. The result is a smartly crafted piece which is both entertaining and educational...Stuffed with gleeful irreverence and hilarious parodies...They effortlessly stay on key, navigating intricate harmonies and singing live, tongue-tying phrases to precision...Together, this bundle of beauties will leave you deeply moved and simultaneously amused."

For a previous production

“America’s favorite Dragappella beauty shop quartet returns with a new show that mixes the traditional with the unexpected. Deeper, more complex and yet riotously funny… Rachel provides the most intense background with a harrowing personal tale of the AIDS crisis in San Francisco…This show is an expert mixture of over-the-top camp and compelling moments. There are ‘things you shouldn’t say,’ but you shouldn’t miss Kinsey Sicks.”

For a previous production

“Parody tributes that elicit chuckles and guffaws for their boldly blunt lyrics…These gals can sing – lovely four-part harmonies and Broadway-style belts ranging from soprano to bass. And everything in between…The Kinsey Sicks…are masters of song parody and that’s what drives their shows…These drag queens have serious voices. Celine Dion, watch your back… Their bawdy humor and malapropisms aside, the Kinseys sparkle, shimmer and shine.”

For a previous production

“Not for everyone, but, for those it is for, it will be a very memorable evening…All four voices are terrific…After intermission...the light ditties began to appeal to me so much more than they had before. I was hooked. And the parody felt more pointed…I began to feel that this program, which had begun in a manner that I was easily dismissing as somewhat facile, was actually and importantly one of the most provocative evenings of political theater I’ve seen in this age of you-know-who.”
