Hilarious, inappropriate, and surprisingly touching. The best piece of theatre I've seen in a while.

Loved it. Absolutely hilarious. Very clever dialog and story. Have not laughed that much in ages. Might be offensive to some! :)

Description

You know writer and activist Dan Savage from The Stranger and the It Gets Better Project, but Dan’s first love was theatre. This summer Dan returns from his theatrical hiatus to create a drag extravaganza that asks what would happen if Helen Keller and the Seattle drag scene of the early 1990’s smashed into each other. Raised by a drag queen amidst false lashes and sequined bras, Helen Stellar struggles to find her voice during amateur drag nights at Seattle’s own Brass Connection. Only with the help of a mysterious out-of-town tutor, and an army of divas, will Helen become a show-stopping queen. Watch the versatile acting ensemble break free from Shakespeare and Ibsen in the fabulous Miracle!, a comedy that guarantees to be offensively heartwarming and celebrate the unique voice in us all.

The show is intended for those ages 17 and older only and features simulated sexual acts, offensive language and fabulous drag performances.

Running time is 1 hour, 45 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.
