25+ Years of Dragapella®

For over 25 years, The Kinsey Sicks have served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at theatres, concert halls, cabarets and comedy festivals across the US and around the world! Their phenomenal performance record includes an Off-Broadway show, an extended run in Vegas, two feature films and three concert DVDs, ten albums, and appearances in over 40 US states, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia. The Kinsey Sicks' award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire, and over-the-top drag have earned them a diverse and devoted following. 

Their 25th Anniversary Show reprised their latest critically-acclaimed show, Things You Shouldn't Say!, named by Forbes Magazine as one of the "Best Theatre of 2017: Broadway and Beyond."  Its “outrageousness tinged with outrage” takes on Trumpism through a celebration of the group’s origins with their signature heart, high hair, and harmonies.

Gloriously, proudly bad taste ... gut-busting parodies and raucous shtick ... high camp, unafraid, subversive ... astonishing.”

The hottest ticket in town ... Voices sweet as birdsong.”

A Legacy of a Lifetime

In July 2018, The Kinsey Sicks' Founder and chief writer, Benjamin Schatz announced that he (and his loveably unboundaried character, Rachel) would retire from the stage after the groups' 25th Anniversary Tour. While Ben continued to write for and work with remaining cast members Jeff Manabat, Spencer Brown, and Nathan Marken, Things you Shouldn't Say marked his final performances. Ben's legacy is both responsible and irresponsible for the group's inventive lyrics, parodies, and shows - having been nominated for both a Drama Desk and Lucille Lortell award (the latter considered the Tony's of Off-Broadway).
