Qurb Magazine Proudly Presents
LADY BUNNY in "TRANS-JESTER!"
...her highly acclaimed one-woman show, a journey of raunchy political incorrectness, hysterical song parodies and engaging storytelling.
THE SIFF EGYPTIAN THEATERThursday May 11th @ 7:00pm
DON'T MISS THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TRANS-JESTER!
In addition to new parodies which re-work selections from Adele, Rent and Bruno Mars to hilarious, effect punctuated by zany Laugh-In style zingers, Bunny has widened her repertoire to include some actually insightful social commentary. (Well, she thinks it's insightful, anyway.) Trashing the current overemphasis on political correctness, Bunny breaks down some of the latest buzzwords that we're all supposed to remember for every for every occasion as we "evolve." Sometimes, Bunny feels, that we're actually evolving away from common sense! Take the new name for our community--LGBTIA. Does anyone even know what that means?
While Bunny shies away from politics in this performance--because one train wreck on stage per night is enough and we all need a break from this toxic election--she doesn't shy away from gender politics and the new pronoun we're forced to learn every time Will Smith's son puts on a dress. After Caitlyn Jenner reached out to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz to become his "trans ambassador", Bunny feels that it's time for the gloves to come off while addressing that car crash. You don't want to miss Bunny doing Cait's twisted version of "My Favorite Things".
Theater queens rejoice! In her loooooong career in nightclubs, Bunny has never delved much into show tunes, but in Trans-Jester, Bunny brings it on home with a show-stopping finale featuring two classics from Gypsy and Follies. The eclectic evening also resurrects songs by country star Lynn Anderson, Millie Jackson and even an original tune which pokes fun at the dating life of whatever sex it is you want to call this "Lady".
Please note: This show is raunchy. Not politically correct by definition--that's the whole point. So if that's not your cup of tea, you should honestly skip it. Or prepare to grab a drink and laugh, cheer and possibly even be challenged by a salty old kook who isn't afraid to express herself from a viewpoint which is often unique.
Trans-Jester! is written by Lady Bunny and Facebook sensation Beryl Mendelbaum.
