Snow White and the Seven Drag Queens Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through May 17 2014

In this gloriously trashy spoof of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, an indomitably chipper cosmetologist moves in with and glams up a septet of sloppy drag queens, attracting the ire of their evil landlady, who can't abide a rival for the title of fiercest bitch in Boystown. There's also a prince, a poisoned lipstick, and several cheeky parodies of pop songs and show tunes. MidTangent Productions first produced Tony Lewis's script in 2009; it's since been expanded in length and given a fresh batch of one-liners and RuPaul references. Among a shamelessly hammy and hilarious cast, the standouts are Katerina Papadatos and Kyle Blair, both of whom evince weapons-grade sass as the spiteful landlady and her shade-throwing mirror, respectively. —Zac Thompson
