About the show

'RuPaul's Drag Race' star BenDeLaCreme debuts her latest solo show, a highly theatrical blend of burlesque, comedy, performance art, and music loosely inspired by Dante’s 'Inferno.' More…

In 'Inferno A-Go-Go,' celebrated story-muddler BenDeLaCreme seeks to answer that age-old question: What the Hell? Turning her gay gaze toward Dante’s 'Inferno'—the original travel brochure of the damned—this rollicking romp through nine circles of fire and fun is equal parts brimstone and rhinestones. Note: In addition to the ticket price, there is a $20 food/drink minimum per person.

"'Inferno' was incredibly well-paced, transitioning from circle to circle and keeping the story moving. But with as many themes as she explored, including racism, homophobia and gentrification, the concepts sometimes flew by nearly as quickly as the jokes. That's less of a critique and more of a ...

“This beautifully coifed guide, with costumes by Helman, who takes through the Inferno of Dante’s creation couldn’t have been more hilarious. Throwing pun after pun, with a whip sharp razor bluntness of a pro, BenDeLaCreme offers us one of the most drag-olicious descent...The music is wildly inap...

"Truly unique, not just in drag performance, but in theatre as a whole...She includes the goofy song parodies and wisecracking comedy so common in drag. However, she’s after something far more sophisticated – her seductive strangeness creeps up on you... More profound than the most chin-strokingl...
