See the tale of Peter Pan gayer than you’ve never seen it before! Join Peter and Drag Queen Gina Tonic as they burst out of the nursery and discover Neverland on acid with a foul mouthed Tink, pirates of the subway, and that big old sexy crocodile! Chock full of pop parodies and holiday classics, slapstick calamities and political satire abound like an over-stuffed stocking, full of surprises for the holiday season (wrapped up in a rainbow-colored bow).
Bold and bawdy, the pantomime, or panto, has been a holiday tradition in Great Britain since 1717. With its roots in commedia dell’arte, the genre takes classic fairy tales and imbues them with a broad and comedic twist. While pantos are traditionally considered family shows, PETER PAN-S3XUAL is a decidedly adult take on this very British entertainment.
Featuring Gina Tonic as The Dame and Tinker Bell, the cast includes Regan Sims, Lily Ali-Oshatz, Matt Mastromatteo, Rachel McPhee, Gabriel Spector, Jonathan Nathaniel Dingle-El, Diego Velázquez, Elizabeth Wright, and Robert K. Benson.
