Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Intelligent, Quirky

See it if You like shows with meaning and humor. If you love drag and accapella. This show is alternately hysterical and heartbreaking.

Don't see it if You dislike drag shows. Don't accapella. Want a light and cheery drag show with no meaning.

Go for the harmony and comedy and hysteria but stay for the history lesson.

See it if you have been waiting for these guys to get to the East Coast grab some tickets now and you need their tight harmonies in your life.

Don't see it if you don't want a history lesson on AIDS and the gay movement. But everyone should see it and learn. Read more

Entertaining, Great acting, Vulgar humor, Intense at times, Fun musical

See it if you like musical drags; political stand up comics, & LGBT info talks on the group's history, struggles & causes. This is a triple treat !

Don't see it if you don't like all of the above... and if you get offended w/ vulgaritites & Trump jokes. But it's worth a peek as not the usual drag show.

Critic Reviews (5)

The Washington Post
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.

Manhattan Digest

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.”

July 21st, 2017
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.”

DC Theatre Scene
July 20th, 2017
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.”
