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

The Unstoppable Rain was painful and hard to watch at times however that made for a very good play overall. It was an original piece of work and something you don't see very often. I love new work and this was great to watch. It contained a message that needs to be said over and over again . Equality for all. The actors did a fine job in their roles and you could see that it was directed with thought and care for the project at hand.
There were a few minor things that needed to be tweaked a bit but overall the writer, Director and cast and crew created a show well worth seeing and I recommend it to a mature audience. A solid piece of work that has you thinking and talking about the show when you walk out of the theatre I know we did!!!

Well written, directed, acted, and set.
Some soliloquies did not meet author's quest for short, modern, movie-like dialogue but were poignant. The comment is not a pejorative form of criticism from this delighted member of the audience.
