America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet

Oy Vey in a Manger

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.

~ The Washington Post

Those who think drag is gawky transvestites in bad wigs lip-synching have another think coming: The Kinsey Sicks are gawky transvestites in bad wigs singing with voices to die for, whose lush arrangements would make the Sing-Off judges swoon.

~ The Huffington Post

"The Royal Shakespeare Company of drag performance."

~ KQED San Francisco (National Public Radio)

"'Oy Vey in a Manger,' a ribald, ridiculous, raunchy, decidedly R-rated romp through the best and worst of Christmas, is lighting up the Washington DC Jewish Community Center's Goldman Theater with laughs and guffaws... [I]n mellifluous voices, they harmonize and belt with the best of 'em. The Kinseys make the Glee club on Fox television with its risque teenage trysts look like a preschool.... A new and subversive holiday tradition."

~ Washington Jewish Weekly

"What proves possibly most striking about The Kinsey Sicks isn't merely their phenomenal vocal blend, but their astonishing ability to cross the line between harmonic brilliance and side-splitting comedy.”   


"What heavenly harmonies...Always razor-sharp lyrics...hilarious... Oy Vey in a Manger is fun, fun, fun!"

~ SF Bay Times

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 Betty 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."
