Drags Aloud at the Movies

Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival

" rocks you with sheer entertainment "
" powerful delivery, and wonderful comic timing "

I don’t want to review this in case I give anything away about Drags Aloud at the Movies now showing in the Complex in Smithfield Square. What a night - hilarious - out Priscillas Priscilla! Drags Aloud, are the real transgendered, transvestite, gender alluring drag queens/kings - the genuine Aussie article. Amanda Munroe, Jessica James, Krisdel Vase and Linda Lamont’s tantalising cross-genderism, powerful delivery, and wonderful comic timing make this hour long show fly by and leave you screaming on your feet for more. How they shipped the stunning costumes from Australia through the volcanic ash is another feat. The pace is electric, the send-ups of movie musicals are hilarious and spot on and the energy, exhausting.

The footage and quick changes are breathtaking in their execution and there is nowhere for an audience to hide - you have to go with the flow on this hilarious trip to the movies. Each character could sell out a night on their own but as Drags Aloud the combination is as electric as the competition - each act equates and outshines it’s predecessor in skill, humour and enjoyment.

We are dragged through the movies - literally from the depths of the Titanic to Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The in your face Aussie style of this world class troupe rocks you with sheer entertainment value. Even the matinee should sell out - hilarious and top quality entertainment. The fastest and funniest hour ever - quite supercalafragalisticexpialidocious!
