Justin Miller’s beautiful drag clown Pearle Harbour lives simultaneously in the past and the future, a wise fool with a sharp wit and a big beautiful heart that’s too often broken.   In Distant Early Warning, her new dystopian solo show at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, she’s alone and in love, totally helpless and […]

Tom Hearn’s monthly show Lipsynced is a wild and fun improv competition that successfully combines improv, lip sync and drag, balancing them all with a funny cast and some drag assassins who just put on a…………..killer performance. They hit the target on that one. Their lip syncs are really in sync. Ok that is my pun limit. […]

Pearle Harbour’s Chautauqua- presented at Theatre Passe Muraille, written and performed by Justin Miller in his Critics’ Pick Award-winning role- is what’s been missing in theatre.

Who needs inner saboteur when Ru is the greatest saboteur of all, and she’s right there…

“Evil triumphs when good queens do nothing.” These are the fitting, essential, and political parting words left on the mirror by The Vixen on her way out the door. Also fitting? The other queens’ responses to it. They pretend as if they are mystified by the sentence, brush it off as if it’s just classic […]

Much like the queens in this week’s mini challenge, I’ve been sitting on a secret too: I am totally unimpressed by Eureka O’Hara. Okay, that’s not a secret at all, but I just feel like I needed to reiterate it because RuPaul continues fruitlessly to try to convince me that Eureka is great. She’s fine! […]
