What people are saying about the show:

“If you have ever cared about anything related to history, gender bending, queerness, or drag, you owe it to yourself to see this show and maybe come away with a little education—and the courage to tell your own story.”

“Brilliant, funny, intelligent”

“Guffaw-worthy, with poignant, thought-provoking moments. Tears in my eyes at the end. Incredibly moving message, especially in these dark Trump days, to remember history. David is brilliant, both as his character, and breaking the 4th wall.”

“What an amazing and entertaining one-man show! David LeBarron has crafted a funny, and at times very touching and poignant telling of the history of drag through his alter-ego Auntie Luscious.”

In this play, Auntie, an aging drag queen, sits backstage with a newbie-queen and bequeaths to her the legacy of a people. Auntie recounts her own ridiculousness coming of age in NYC in the 90’s, meeting Quentin Crisp, having her nails done, and getting bashed. As a dilettante historian, she reaches across continents and times to weave a tale that ties her own adventures into the tapestry of queer history.

“You came from a people. A betrayed race of glitter and tucking, of illusion and bone crushing, throat throttling, reality,” she tells her protégé. “Being happy is the most politically threatening thing you can be. Smile all the time.”

Maybe the dark or heights or a broken down, mechanical movie shark - whatever the source, this funny and often poignant one hour solo show explores our fears, both real and imagined, fish and human alike.
