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

This is a very intense performance in a small (49 seats) space. Lauren English is fabulous, and I thought the play was very well written. Definitely made me aware of issues I hadn't previously given much thought to involving America's modern style of warfare. Very timely given current events.
Quotes & Highlights
- “The one-woman show, featuring Lauren English, focuses with spare and poetic language on an American pilot, who after finding herself pregnant, becomes a Predator drone operator. Instead of being stationed in the Gulf, she finds herself working from a trailer near Las Vegas—and instead of a years' long deployment, she comes home to dinner with her husband and daughter every night.” —<a target="_blank" href="http://www.modernluxury.com/san-francisco/story/coming-home-the-war-every-night-going-back-every-morning"><em>San Francisc</em>o</a> Magazine
