Things You Shouldn't Say

Here's what the critics have to say (click here for a complete list of fabulous reviews!):

— USA —

"Hilarious ... it's a piercing cry from the heart"

~ The Washington Post

"One of the most provocative evenings of political theatre I've seen"
~ DC Theatre Scene

"Deeper, more complex and yet riotously funny ... This show is an expert mixture of over-the-top camp and compelling moments. There are some things you shouldn't say but you shouldn't miss The Kinsey Sicks”
~ Cabaret Scene Magazine (NY)

“Things You Shouldn’t Say is stuffed with gleeful irreverence and hilarious parodies ... So much of today’s gay-themed entertainment glosses over or omits the unimaginable loss that was suffered during the height of the community’s most infectious disease. The quartet deserve heaps of praise for reminding audiences of what was lost, what was won, and why the struggle is far from over ... Vocally, the “girls” are spectacular ... they effortlessly stay on key, navigating intricate harmonies and singing live, tongue-tying phrases to precision ... this bundle of beauties will leave you deeply moved and simultaneously amused.”
~ Manhattan Digest

If you love Donald Trump, you’ll hate this show!

This is the remarkable true story of four friends from San Francisco who had a life-changing epiphany at a Bette Midler concert that led to them to form The Kinsey Sicks in an effort to find joy during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis. Now that the era of Trumpism is upon us, they’re sharing their hilarious, inspiring and at times heartbreaking tale, and showing that hatred and deceit can be fought with humor and heart. 

This show was a smash hit Off-Broadway at New York’s fabled SoHo Playhouse. Critics have described the show as “powerful,” “provocative,” “delicious,” “subversive,” “hilarious,” “stirring,” “exquisite,” “electric,” “outrageous," “heartbreaking," “brave,” “mesmerizing,” “flawless,” “superb," "incredibly moving,” ”inventively diabolical,” “riotously funny,” "vitally significant,” “an absolute must watch," and "theater its BEST"!

So come join America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet as they lead us all in resisting these new dark times with laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair in an unforgettable new musical exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong vegetables and, of course, Bette Midler.
