Drag star Lady Bunny presents her latest raunchy, raucous, irreverent solo show at the legendary Stonewall Inn.

... Read more

In addition to new parodies which rework selections from Adele, 'Rent,' and Bruno Mars to comic effect punctuated by zany 'Laugh-In'-style zingers, Bunny has widened her repertoire to include some insightful social commentary. (Well, she thinks it's insightful, anyway.) Trashing the current overemphasis on political correctness, Bunny breaks down some of the latest buzzwords that we're all supposed to remember for every occasion as we "evolve." Sometimes, Bunny feels, that we're actually evolving away from common sense.

"Delightfully crass humor…A one-person show that balances social commentary with toilet humor to achieve a brilliant aesthetic and emotional balance. Bunny expertly works with the audience energy, driving the piece while tweaking nuances on the fly to hold the audience in the palm of her brooch-bejeweled hand…The joy that Bunny brings to the stage is nothing short of infectious, and audiences cannot help but feel a connection, not only to Bunny, but to each other."

Filthy Dreams

for a previous production "There is still all the campy shock humor from Bunny that you’ve come to expect and adore. But now, there’s a sly political critique in her drive to make audience members clutch their pearls...The most striking moments are perhaps when Bunny sits and levels with the crowd about our current culture...There’s a kernel of truth in her observations about the ridiculous infighting and political correctness of the queer community...Thankfully for all of us, Bunny is still here."

City Guide New York

for a previous production "With legs that won’t quit and a blond bouffant 'do that reaches high into the heavens, Lady Bunny’s raucous new show, co-written with Beryl Mendelbaum, touches upon current events, celebrities, sexuality, taboo sexuality, bodily functions, politics, gender, and more. Be forewarned—if you take umbrage with these subjects, do NOT go see the show! It is in no way shape, or form, politically correct (and that is the show’s intention)." Full Review

Funny, Profound, Relevant, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if you love politically charged humor that refuses to be politically correct. The sharp wit and precise commentary is sublime and poignant.

Don't see it if you hate drag queens, hate laughing, hate humor, hate comedy, hate politically charged comedy, or simply hate being alive.

See it if you have an appreciation of drag and want to be surprised by Bunny's bold insight and strong point of view.

Don't see it if you don't already have hearing loss. There is a line between being true to the environment and being simply alienating beyond justification.
