More About the Shows
Oy Vey in a Manger
In Oy Vey in a Manger, we find Rachel, Winnie, Trixie, and Trampolina trying to sell off their manger--yes, that manger--before it's foreclosed upon. Crises arise, secrets are revealed, Jewish-Gentile tensions surface, and mayhem ensues--all in glorious four-part harmony.
Oy Vey boasts The Kinsey Sicks reinterpretations of holiday classics, such as "God Bless Ye Femmy Lesbians," "Satan Baby", and "I'm Dreaming of a Vanna White Christmas", plus hilarious Jewish satiric fare, including "Don't Be Happy, Worry," the Chanukah spa classic "I Had a Little Facial" and, of course, the requisite and new Christmas cuisine standard, "Soylent Night."
In an ecumenical display of wicked joie de vivre, the Kinsey Sicks are sending up everything that's holy in “Oy Vey in a Manger,” a raunchily audacious declaration that nothing about the holidays is sacred… If you haven't made the acquaintance of the Kinsey Sicks, it's high time you did.

Chicks with Shticks
Be amazed (or appalled) by The Kinsey Sicks' latest and greatest dragtastic a cappella musical! This collection of new songs is an equal mix of appalling original songs and unforgivable parodies of such favorites as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; A Whole New World; What Does the Fox Say; a Carole King number; two Grammy-award winning hits: Happy and the Disney sensation Let it Go. In other words, this show has something to mortify everyone!
PLUS, the audience has the special privilege to shape the show for the next audience! That's right, it's up to YOU to determine which songs are so outstandingly bad that the next audience should not see them! Come enjoy the show, and judge whether a song lives or dies!
"As always, hilarity ensues."

The Lady Cocks of Bang Boys
Seeking beautiful drag queens who make everyone feel fuzzy and safe?
Then this isn't your show!
Last year's Fringe sweethearts (and Vegas and Off-Broadway favourites) present a demented new Dragapella musical comedy: outlandish drag, impeccable a cappella, subversive satire. Experience the best of their nine albums and 22 years of making audiences lose their shit!
For extra fun, audiences will vote out songs, so the show changes nightly!
★★★★★"The vocals are excellent, the comedy is perfectly timed and this is one of the most fun nights out you'll have at the Fringe."
- Broadway World
★★★★ "The Kinseys’ outrageous persona is a Trojan horse for serious political comment and a shield from behind which gay men can impose socially transgressive ideas upon straight society...Parodies of well known tunes get the biggest laughs, but it's the quartet's self penned material that demonstrates the extent of their talent.”
- Fest Magazine
★★★★ “Winnie, Rachel, Trixie and Trampolina are fabulous femmes – gloriously glamorous, wackily witty and totally tuneful... these dames have enviable individual voices that they can combine into lovely four-part harmonies... The lyrics are Ladyshave sharp and rarely less than ribald.”
- The Scotsman
★★★★ "This beautyshop quartet grab the audience by the balls for a non-stop evening of innuendo and perfect harmony... it’s a great chance for the group to shine and showcase their comedic chops, as well as their musical talent. A great combo from a bunch of queens who are bound to impress you and your friends, if you’re ready for the odd shock along the way."
- Broadway Baby
★★★★ "The vocals were absolutely fantastic, and the humour was perfection. I love it when the American sense of humour translates so well over in the UK.
The only bad thing about this show is that I really wish that there was a little bit more! Regardless, it boasted brilliant vocals, amazing dress senses, hilarious humour - get to them before it's too late!”
- Arts Award Voice
'Hilariously over the top... utterly magnificent’ *****
