If you are coming to see the movie (as a few previous reviews noted) clearly you don't quite understand the back history that the movie based from the PLAY. Charles Busch played Chicklet in the broadway performance, hence why she is played by a...continued

The venue was just the right size for this informal play & the actors were all quite wonderful. It was well written and well played out. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Love the theatre, love the company, but the play itself was far too campy for my taste.
