"hostile, lewd, and riotously funny" -- Time Out
"Beat is a trained theater actress, but no amount of training could make
a person this talented, this witty, or this scathing. The show should just
be called ‘Jackie Beat is a F*cking Genius.’” -- The Village Voice
“a triple-shot barrage of twisted songs, barbed social commentary,
and all-around bad taste” -- Staten Island Advance
JACKIE BEAT, everyone's favorite big, bawdy, bold and ballsy funny "lady" brings
her most controversial show to date to Off-Broadway’s Gramercy Theater (127 East
23rd Street -- accessible from the N,R,F,V & 6 trains at 23rd Street). Just in
time for Gay Pride, she premieres JACKIE BEAT: PRAY THE GAY AWAY on Friday, June 24

and $25 (orchestra level tables), available at 212-352-3101 or www.SpinCycleNYC.com.

JACKIE BEAT loves her gay fans. But she just doesn't understand the sick,
perverted lifestyle that they have chosen to lead. This year, just in time for
Gay Pride, she wants to help. Preaching to the perverted from her bullying
pulpit, JACKIE BEAT: PRAY THE GAY AWAY is an evening of Divine intervention
featuring Beat's award winning comedy and song parodys that slaughter sacred
cows including Madonna, Britney and Lady Gaga. By the end of the evening, you
will be on your knees and en-Raptured, ready for the Second Coming.
