Kings N Things' almost decade of performance and community service culminates in Drag King: The Musical
Anyhoo, this here is too little space to go into the whole spirit-gum wad of history that explains what makes local drag-king troupe Kings N Things what it is today. Suffice it to say, this gang of male-impersonating gender-benders has grown. Sure, sometimes their bits are as cringe-worthy as junior high plays, and sometimes they thinly skate on that nerve residing between high art and unintended dadaism, but no more and no less than any of the other woman-powered, gender-role-challenging movements that emerged around that same turn of the century, such as the burlesque and Roller Derby scenes that still thrive and thrill Austin audiences every week.
This week, the Kings resurrect a successful venture they debuted last year:
Drag Kings: The Musical. Last year, all the shows sold out. There is nothing to indicate that will not be the case this year. Get your tickets now. See Friday.
