Qurb Media Group Proudly Presents: LADY BUNNY in her new HILARIOUS and HEARTFELT one woman show:
ALADDIN THEATER – 3017 SE Milwaukie Ave, Portland, OR
Thursday May 25th @ 7:00pm
“Forget Hamilton Get Tickets To Lady Bunny’s Naughty New Show” – NaughtyGossip, NYC
“A scream for sanity from the nastiest, most big-hearted comic performer around.” – John Cameron Mitchell
“A gag-worthy show you can’t miss.” – Huffington Post Gay Voices
DON’T MISS THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TRANS-JESTER! In addition to new parodies which re-work selections from Adele, Rent and Bruno Mars to hilarious, effect punctuated by zany Laugh-In style zingers, Bunny has widened her repertoire to include some insightful social commentary. Trashing the current overemphasis on political correctness, Bunny breaks down some of the latest buzzwords that we’re all supposed to remember for every for every occasion as we “evolve.” Sometimes, Bunny feels, that we’re evolving away from common sense!
While Bunny shies away from politics in this performance–because one train wreck on stage per night is enough and we all need a break from this toxic election–she doesn’t shy away from gender politics and the new pronoun we’re forced to learn every time Will Smith’s son puts on a dress. After Caitlyn Jenner reached out to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz to become his “trans ambassador”, Bunny feels that it’s time for the gloves to come off. You don’t want to miss Bunny doing Cait’s twisted version of “My Favorite Things”.
Theater queens rejoice! In her loooooong career in nightclubs, Bunny has never delved much into show tunes, but in Trans-Jester, Bunny brings it on home with a show-stopping finale featuring two classics from Gypsy and Follies. The eclectic evening also resurrects songs by country star Lynn Anderson, Millie Jackson and even an original tune which pokes fun at the dating life of whatever sex it is you want to call this “Lady.”
Please note: This show is raunchy. Not politically correct by definition–that’s the whole point. So if that’s not your cup of tea, you should honestly skip it. Or prepare to grab a drink and laugh, cheer and possibly even be challenged by a salty old kook who isn’t afraid to express herself from a viewpoint which is often unique.
