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 Actors Theatre maintains a very high standard for production by a local group. Both Stella and Blanch women characters give exceptionally strong performances. What is especially nice about any show this group produces is the intimate connection between the performers and the audience. In part this is due to the nature of a small venue and in part it is due to the warm , friendly treatment patrons receive from all the staff. It is common to talk to the directors, actors and sometimes writers before the show,during intermission and at the conclusion.
This is a low budget production with some outstanding performers.
