Edgy, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if you'd like to see a Chicago troupe do a funny version of "The Bad Seed" in drag. Good costumes and set for off Broadway.

Don't see it if you do not like alternate versions of known works or drag or expect the drag to be like RuPaul's show.

Quirky, Great acting, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if Fun show, with an interesting spin on The Bad Seed. The lead was really good, and entire cast did a good job. Good staging.

Don't see it if You don't like drag or broad humor. It greatly helps if you are familiar with The Bad Seed in particular, and also RuPaul's Drag Race.

Mildly amusing

See it if you loved The Bad Seed and would enjoy a spoof in drag. I never saw The Bad Seed and found this show only mildly amusing at times. Too long!

Don't see it if you want to laugh out loud throughout. A few mildly amusing moments but otherwise meh. Ed Jones is very good.

Edgy, Entertaining, Raunchy, Funny, Clever

See it if You’re a fan of fringe / offbeat / quirky theater. Bold unapologetic zany acting choices.

Don't see it if You’re a prude or homophobic.

Theatermania
April 6th, 2022

"'The Drag Seed' is a riot — a clever satire of our shifting manners told through the kaleidoscope of drag. Crucially, it never takes itself too seriously, which feels like a breath of fresh air in our overly severe age."
