America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet

"Oy Vey in a Manger"/"Things You Shouldn't Say" finish Off-Broadway this week; "Oy Vey" moves to SF Dec 26-30

Dec 19, 2017

No more putting it off! Do you want to be the only tasteless schmuck who hasn’t seen Things You Shouldn’t Say and Oy Vey in a Manger Off-Broadway this month?

Thank you all who caught the final showing of Things You Shouldn’t Say! Here are the most recent critical raves about the show:

Forbes Magazine praised it as 1 of 11 shows in "Best Theater of 2017: Broadway and Beyond" and raved: "riveting ... a humbling, hilarious delivery system of painful truths ... 'Things You Shouldn’t Say' will push buttons you didn’t know you had. And there is perhaps no higher compliment to give a queen than that."

"Eloquent and essential ... This is a crucial piece of theater: intelligent, poignant and heart-rending ... We need 'Things You Shouldn’t Say.' We need more plays like this one. With humor, honesty and a score of tunes that will have you in stitches, 'Things You Shouldn’t Say' successfully tackles one the biggest heartbreaks in history … powerful and funny.”~Theater Pizzazz 

And here’s how the critics are praising Oy Vey in a Manger!

"A raunchy parody of a holiday show that could make even Scrooge smile.” ~NY Post
"In the mood for smart, sassy humor delivered by an outstanding a cappella ensemble? The Kinsey Sicks, has created a holiday musical comedy full of wit, ingenuity and lipstick … pitch-perfect … a treasure trove of facetiously clever lyrics ... endlessly funny ... This Beautyshop Quartet is as fine an a cappella group as any I’ve heard ... Give yourself the gift of laughter for the holidays. See 'Oy Vey In A Manger.'” ~Theater Pizzazz

Can’t see Oy Vey in New York? No problem! There are 7 shows at SF’s renowned Boxcar Theatre December 26-20.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON! A CAR ACCIDENT AND THREE FRACTURED RIBS WON’T STOP TRAMPOLINA!

Nov 1, 2017

As you may have heard, our fabulous Trampolina/Spencer was hospitalized after her and Trixie/Jeff's Uber was in a car crash on the way to the airport for our gig in Kutztown, PA. Three fractured ribs and a hospital stay later, Trampy is determined to do the show, although we’ve postponed the opening night of our Puerto Vallarta run until November 6. Will Trampy be seated the whole time? Or will she be lying down on a fabulous gurney/chaise lounge? How exactly will we do this show? Believe us, we’re as excited to find out as you are. And although Trixie wasn't hospitalized, will her cuts, bruises, and back spasms impede her normally flawless ability to fall instantaneously to her knees?

Send Trampolina & Trixie some love and come find out for yourself! We have over 40 shows in November and December in Puerto Vallarta and Ajijic, Mexico; Eugene, OR; New York City; and San Francisco and Cotati, CA. Check out the calendar page for details.

Harvard Law School Inexplicable Invites The Kinsey Sicks to Perform at 200th Anniversary Gala!

Sep 8, 2017

Las Vegas odds-makers are placing bets: Can America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet ruin in 20 minutes the reputation that Harvard Law School has taken 200 years to build?

One thousand delighted and/or scandalized Harvard Law students, faculty and esteemed alumni will find out next week Friday, September 15. The event, hosted by HLS alumnus and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, will feature Harvard Law School’s most distinguished (and in The Kinseys’ case; most scandalous) alumni in the field of the arts and entertainment. The law school counts among its alumni numerous Presidents, Senators, Governors, two thirds of the current US Supreme Court, and, most prestigiously, one singing drag queen, The Kinsey Sicks’ very own Rachel.

The event is restricted to members of the Harvard Law School community (“An oxymoron if ever there were one,” notes Rachel.) But news of the conflagration is sure to escape. Stay tuned.
