Move over Pump Boys and Dinettes, THE HELL'S KITCHENETTES return -- yet again, by popular demand! -- to serve up hot plates and wholesome harmonies in this all-live singing drag musical. It will be presented Sunday, January 27 at 7 PM at The Laurie Beechman Theatre (inside the West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street). Tickets are $22 for general admission or $35 for VIP,  available at www.SpinCycleNYC.com or 212-352-3101. There is also a $20 food/beverage minimum at all performances.

THE HELL'S KITCHENETTES is the story of three diner girls with a song in their heart and a tune in their tuna melts. It stars returning Beechman favorites Jackie Cox (I Dream of Jackie, Make America Gay Again) as sweet Mabel Syrup, James Mills (Paige Turner's Christmas Carol) as stacked Pam Cakes, and veteran character actor Michael LaMasa as hot Bette Griddler, the leader of the troupe. When calamity strikes the Loose Caboose diner, the Hell's Kitchenettes band together to save the joint and put on a hell of a show at the same time!

Based on an original concept from LaMasa, Mills, and Darius Rose (Cox),  this hilarious musical comedy features songs from the Andrews Sisters, and new harmonic takes on musical theater and hit pop tunes. It is probably unlike any drag show you've seen before!

JACKIE COX (Mabel Syrup) is best known to Laurie Beechman audiences as the lovable genie from her hit 2017 Glam Award nominated show I Dream of Jackie and its sequel Jackie's Nightmare as well as from her numerous collaborations with NYC Drag Star Paige Turner (Paige Turner's Christmas Carol, Easter Eggstravaganza, Make America Gay Aagain).
