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:
