Take in two of Charles Busch's satires with this outrageous double bill. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom follows a pair of bloodsuckers who have a rivalry dating back 2,000 years. Their immortal catfight rages through time with a dramatic flair-up during Hollywood's silent movie era when the two vampires become competing film stars. Set in London's swinging mod scene of the '60s, Sleeping Beauty, or Coma is a groovy adaptation of the fairy tale. High fashion, a wacky fairy godmother and bad LSD lead to a 20-year coma only a prince can break. Learn More

Humorous show with lots of local Upper Peninsula phrases and quirky behavior. A bit too much bathroom humor for my taste, but the slo-mo scene was quite entertaining. Actors did a fine job, as well as the costumes, props, sets. Worth the price of admission for an evening's entertainment.

Good accents, good acting, the end is a bit open for interpretation. I don't like feeling incomplete. Maybe I didn't read through enough but I thought Jeff Daniels was gonna be in it.... but just good marketing.
There are some good effects / scenes.
Quotes & Highlights
“[The] cast energizes the proceedings with sharp comic timing, hilariously pregnant silences and idiosyncratic characters … a treasure chest of comical Yooper (Upper Peninsula Michigan) lore, prejudices and practices.” —San Francisco Chronicle
