Show DescriptionS

Things You Shouldn't Say 

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 at 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. 

 Oy Vey in a Manger

The girls try 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 Vanna 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."
