What's it about?
A compilation of parodies based on celebrity divas, performed by drag queens.
What I experienced?
The big takeaway here: Can I be a drag queen? No, seriously though. Can I be? Because it looks hella fun and like they’re an insanely good time, and that’s what I want to be. I want to be that.
The second I entered the theater, I’m singing and nodding along to the music. I was super nostalgic because they played a mixture of throwbacks from “Raise Your Glass,” to a song I couldn’t even expect, “Jai Ho.” I’m not really sure why that song made the cut, but it’s one of my faves, so the second I heard it I knew I was sold, and the show didn’t even start yet.
Mind you, I’ve been to the Distorted Series before. I saw Distorted Diznee about a year ago, so I knew I was in for a treat, and man, I remember why I wanted to see this show. Not only is it a pick me up after a long day, but it’s also just as funny as I remember it. Great music and soundbites mixed with celebrity. How can you go wrong?
Now, not to pick favorites, but who am I kidding? I'm totally picking favorites. I fell in love with Miley Cyrus. Partially because the drag queen that played her was kinda cute and party because the combination of music and soundbites were hilarious. Like when she's singing "Wrecking Ball," a prop wrecking ball comes swinging at her. I had a *grabs pearls* moment. Like where did that even come from?! And then there was a soundbite song parody about her awkward stunt she pulled at the VMAs with Robin Thicke. They had her decked out in that bear outfit, and that coupled with the parody within the parody inception was just hilarious. The song was throwing so much shade, and I was a cross between being like "ohhhh snap" and "haha that's pretty accurate."
Queen Elsa took close seconds because come on, it's QUEEN ELSA. I even got jealous at certain points because the dress was on point, and it looked GORGEOUS. I would totally have it in my closet and wear it just cause. Of course, "Let It Go," was played, and I may or may not have definitely sung along in belting fashion (I'm a total sucker for Disney Princesses). I think the same drag queen played Queen Elsa too, so I guess what I'm really saying is that drag queen was my all time fave. You get it boo boo. You're killin' it.
I walk out of the theater feeling all happy go lucky and just continually thinking about being a drag queen. Because I would humbly and excitedly accept an invitation to be one. Hats off to ya'll because I'm sold. #dragqueensforlife
