Drag queens rule comedy revue

Combine a cappella singing, satirical comedy and over-the-top drag and you have The Kinsey Sicks, a gender-bending “beautyshop quartet” bringing its one-of-a-kind “Dragapella” revue to California State University, Sacramento at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Dec. 1 in the University Union Ballroom.

Los Angeles Magazine said "The Kinsey Sicks will put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. These four musicians-actors-writers-composers-drag queens are wickedly gay, and man, can they sing! Completely a cappella, their material is intelligent and scathingly funny. Their lyrical parodies of well known songs will have you rolling... With their impeccable timing, precise harmonies, and cultural savvy, the Kinseys represent fabulous, satirical queer humor at its finest."

Founded in 1993 by a group of friends who went in drag to a San Francisco Bette Midler concert, Ben Schatz, Irwin Keller, Chris Dilley and Kevin Smith Kirkwood have gone on to become one of the hottest touring groups in the nation. The Kinsey Sicks’ all-original productions include “Motel Sicks: A Dragapella Summer Vacation” and “Everything But the Kitsch ‘n’ Synch.” Their off-Broadway show, “Dragapella,” hit the stage in 2001 to the delight of critics. The show was nominated for a Lucille Lortel award as best musical and for a Drama Desk Award for best lyrics.

The Kinsey Sicks are presented by the CSUS Multi-Cultural and Women’s Resource Centers and the Queer Straight Alliance. Tickets are $7.50 general, $5 for CSUS students and available from the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or
