Of all the great female stars to emerge from Australia -- Olivia-Newton John, Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman -- none can hold a candle to the rhinestone-studded awesomeness of Dame Edna Everage, the planet's reigning (and only) "gigastar." Modestly described as "probably the most gifted and talented woman in the world today," Dame Edna has circled the globe dispensing sage advice to her beloved "possums." Originally a character created by performer Barry Humphries, the sharply comedic Edna lives on in this flawless impression by Michael Walters who has donned the "wisteria" coif and sparkly glasses since 2001. With the blessing of Humphries, Walters presents this housewife, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, talk show host, swami, children's book illustrator, spin doctor, etc. etc. in all her hilarious sharped-tongue glory at The Cabaret Theater at CAMP Bar.

It is a great show with a lot of innuendo jokes and good singing. The fellow who played his sister as well as himself had his work cut out for him. He reminded me of the Church Lady from SNL. The female cast members also had a lot of quick costume changes. It's good show even at full price.
Quotes & Highlights
The play won the award for Best Author of an original musical and the Los Angeles Artistic Director Achievement Award.
It’s county fair time in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, which means one thing to Gunner and Clara Johnson, owners of a little bar called The Bunyan; The Miss Walleye Queen Competition. Bernice, the pretty waitress, sees this as her chance to win Miss Walleye Queen, to be discovered, and to have her face carved in butter at the State Fair. The trouble begins when Gunner’s wife, Clara, decides she also wants to win Miss Walleye Queen, and when Gunner’s estranged twin sister, Trigger, shows up to try to win the beauty pageant, things get ugly.
