The SF Bay Guardian calls solo performer Seth Eisen “a sly, vigorous, soulful performer,” and Blackbird, “a completely unexpected journey through some vibrant underground queer history.” Brian Freeman (Pomo Afro Homos) directs this musical evening of mimicry, puppetry, and faggotry. The Pansy Craze sensation of the 1930’s swept the nation delivering queer cabaret in all its splendor. Led by Jean Malin, the creator of the movement, you’re serenaded into a falsetto spell and taken on an illicit journey that stitches together songs and stories about the struggles and triumphs of seven Queer artists who found radical ways to counter the severe repression of their eras. Join the questionably gay Danny Kaye; Tommy Dee of Polk street sleaze; Sylvester, the international disco diva; Klaus Nomi, the operatic new wave siren; Brazil’s fey Ney Matogroso and Azis, the uproarious Bulgarian gender-bending singer, as they share their own extraordinary stories. Written and performed by Seth Eisen. Music by Sean Feit and Jesse Olsen.
