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. Full Review
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." Full Review
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.” Full Review
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.” Full Review
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.” Full Review
See it if You're up for a fun hilarious evening of amazing 4part acapela drag both silly & quite serious, spot-on & important in this political moment
Don't see it if You're homophobic or Republican; it simply won't be pleasant for you, all those raunchy drag queens and all that AIDS/HIV and LGBTQ talk.
See it if Kinsey's mixing it up with politics, LGBT activism & typical raunchy humor "Girls" all at the top of their game w/ personal fav Trixie A#1
Don't see it if Despite being heartfelt & moving, Rachel's 'life in the AIDS war zone' monologue mid-show sinks comic momentum & show never quite recovers
See it if you want a fun, silly, campy drag acapella production that feels charmingly old school. Great singing. but the dialogue is lackluster
Don't see it if you want something vigorous and edgy. Some great historical insight but some hackneyed attempts to reference contemporary politics
See it if you like drag, stupendous acapella singing, heartfelt messages re: AIDS, human rights, the current political climate, gay history
Don't see it if you are intolerant of "preaching to the choir", scatalogical humor, lack of real edginess, and want something other than an eve of bawdy fun
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.
See it if you want to laugh & be entertained by 4 fabulous drags with their views on HIV and Trump as the focus. A cappella singing is great.
Don't see it if If you like Trump, don't like drag or a cappella.
See it if You want to laugh a lot while being entertained and informed. You want to hear some truths. You want to hear some great singing.
Don't see it if You don't like to laugh. You don't want to hear some amazing voices. You don't want to hear about the struggles. You are too serious.
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.
See it if you've never seen the KinseySicks brand of dragapella music, comedy & history lesson. Lots of laughs, parody, screaming & serious moments
Don't see it if drag, musical parody,and lecturing are not your thing
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.
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.
See it if You want to see political comedy in the form of song parodies performed by drag queens. You want to watch a classic LGBT group.
Don't see it if You're want something closer to RuPaul. You want something well-directed (needed more attention to make their points more powerful).
See it if you are liberal, enjoy drag shows along with fine a cappella singing, political content and some very serious stories thrown in.
Don't see it if you hate drag queens and cabaret style shows. You are an alt-right supporter. You are homophobic.
Also A seriously entertaining show, and with an important message.
See it if You enjoy drag shows and very talented acapella performers with fun and interesting parody songs. This show also takes a very serious turn.
Don't see it if You don't like your drag/acapella shows mixed in with a healthy dose of serious reality. Also it felt long at 1.5hrs, could have been 1 hour
See it if you enjoy great singing of creative musical parodies by an in-your-face drag queen group with very opinionated social commentary.
Don't see it if you don't like campy, raunchy drag queens who interact with audience members and bring you onstage to participate in the show.
