Lip Service: queering the musical theatre canon

[Description]
^^^^ NEU ^^ QUEER ^^ KABARET. ^^^^
MUSICAL THEATRE GONE STRANGE WITH GINA YOUNG, OUR LADY J AND A SATURDAY NIGHT DANCE PARTY WITH DJ AUTOMATON.
TICKETS HERE NOW! https://www.elbowspace.com/servlets/cfd?xr4&formts=2006-05-23+12%3A16%3A21.515002

Shakespeare's Desdemona and Emilia were lovers and A Midsummer Night's Dream was actually a big gay sex romp. Guys & Dolls is a musical about butch/femme gender roles, Gershwin songs are gay love ballads and Fiddler on the Roof has the queer anarchist leanings you always suspected.

Welcome to the world of LIP SERVICE-- an intimate evening of excerpts from musical theater and classic plays, each performed with a queer twist ranging from cross-gendered casting to exploration of real (or imagined) lesbian subtext. Gina Young brings her signature style to a new form– cabaret– in a full-length evening of live music, dance, and the wistful desire to rewrite the classics of our childhood to include ourselves.

GINA YOUNG (singing! in a dress!)
will be joined onstage
by a host of Los Angeles queer talent including:
NADIA VAZQUEZ and JESSICA DEBRUIN from TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE LESBO
OUR LADY J
