About the show

Vintage musical comedy meets modern farce when two female impersonators start working as showgirls on a cruise ship. More…

Two female impersonators meet a near-disaster after backing up Sue Flay, the worst drag diva in Paris. Now jobless and homeless, their salvation arrives in the form of a job offer as fabulous showgirls on the Queen Ethel May, a wacky cruise ship. The catch? They must keep their male identities a secret from everyone: the crew, the passengers, and some very determined male suitors. It's madcap adventure all around in the tradition of "Some Like It Hot" and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."

for a previous production “''Fabulous!' piles such silliness upon silliness that it’s almost impossible not to sit there for more than two hours with a stupid grin. Some of the songs aren’t great. Some of the voices are off key, maybe deliberately. But Rick Hamilton has directed with a sublime sense of goofy innocence tha...

for a previous production "'Fabulous!' is a big, corny, messy, shabby, silly queen of a show, and it’s often a lot of fun...It is unabashedly nostalgic for a bygone time when Broadway musicals asked you only to check your cares and your brain at the door...Best not to think about the twists that ensue in the overlong plot...

for a previous production "'Fabulous', a slightly confused parody/pastiche musical is good natured, energetic and lots of fun...A lot of suspension of disbelief—and good sense—is necessary to enjoy the hijinks of 'Fabulous'...The production is sweetly second rate."
