Our gender-bending revival of The Cockettes’ psychedelic musical inspired by sin-soaked Old Shanghai and Busby Berkeley movie musicals from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Now in its second smash year! Click for more info.
By Nicole Gluckstern for the SF Bay Guradian ::
Thrillpeddlers has slyly redefined its brand of thrills to embrace a wholly different genre besides the Grand Guignol revivalism for which it is best known; setting aside its usual quotient of twisted naturalism and splattered gore for the rambunctious, over-the-top glitter and glam of Theatre of the Ridiculous.
Vetern Thrillpeddler Will McMichael writes and directs his new play Night Witches for the Hollywood Fringe Festival with the help of Thrillpeddlers. Thousands of young women went to war on the Eastern Front of WWII. Among the most elite were the women of Night Bomber Regiment 588. In hushed fearful tones, the Nazi called them Nachthexen (Night Witches). Playing June 5 - 23, 2016.
