So first, Hedwig and the Angry Inch came to the Bay Street Theatre at Savannah’s Club One.
Then tonight was The Rocky Horror Show. Starring, of course, the former Ms. Hedwig as the current Dr. Frank-N-Furter. And bitch turned it out! It was so much fun and sexy and sparkly.
Clearly, this is becoming my favorite place in the great city of Savannah.
I was mildly disappointed when I saw the next announced play. I had never heard of it. I was hoping for REPO! The Genetic Opera, because that would complete my unholy trinity of favorite musicals. Instead it was a play called Mr. Marmalade. I looked it up and I’m ashamed of my initial skepticism because it looks so fucking good!
Lucy is a four-year-old girl with a very active imagination. Unfortunately, her imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade doesn’t have much time for her. Not to mention he beats up his personal assistant, has a cocaine addic-tion, and a penchant for pornography and very long dildos. Larry, her only real friend, is the youngest suicide attempt in the history of New Jersey. MR. MARMALADE is a savage black comedy about what it takes to grow up in these difficult times.
Britney bless queer Savannah theatre!
