DISTORTED DIZNEE is an outrageous Las Vegas-styleparody revue of some of America's most beloved animated classics. Come be Part of Our World as a troupe of fabulous drag queens takes you on a twisted -- and very adult -- journey, catapulting you back to your childhood into a Magical Kingdom where dreams come true. This ever-evolving 75-minute non-stop extravaganza features high-energy dance numbers, comedy, dazzling costumes and lip-syncing "ladies"-- with a bit of Cher, Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel and Rihanna thrown in for good measure!
DISTORTED HOLLYWOOD is a 70-minute drag-a-palooza where all of your favorite Silver Screen moments are brought back to life -- with a twist! Classics including Titanic, Wizard of Oz and Mommie Dearest are given a facelift as they are "remixed" along with iconic pop culture moments and songs by the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. These queens know how to put the tinsel in Tinsletown as they turn the Hollywood Walk of Fame into the Walk of Shame! Join us for this Oscar (and Razzie) worthy night of blockbuster entertainment.
In DISTORTED KRISTMESS, all of your holiday favorites are run past a dirty funhouse mirror. Highlights include a twisted take on Let It Snow, an alternative Grinch, and a warped spin on A Charlie Brown Christmas as well as a special visit from The Port Authority Cockettes, an extremely downscale version of the celebrated Radio City Rockettes.
Presented by Daniel Logan and Dallas DuBois, the "Distorted" drag show series began in March 2012 with the premiere of DISTORTED DIZNEE. After gaining a cult following, it spawned the holiday-themed DISTORTED KRISTMESS, as well as the Great White Way parody DISTORTED BROADWAY and the special Gay Pride extravaganza DISTORTED PRIDE.
