Pageant: The Musical is one contest where -- regardless of which beauty gets the crown -- the audience is the clear winner. That's because the hopeful finalists vying for the "Miss Glamouresse" tiara are not only hilarious, zany and (eccentrically) talented ... these female contestants are all played by men. Watch and take notes as these "ladies" go through the swimsuit, talent and evening gown competitions because a lucky few members of the audience will get to be judges and select the winner.

As a devoted theatregoer I must say that hers is one of the most honest, hard-to-watch-yet-harder-to-turn-away-from performances I've ever had both the pleasure and pain to see.
