The Kinsey Sicks in "Things You Shouldn't Say!"
Proceeds from this performance will go to Equality Toledo's Community Center Study Fund.
This is the remarkable true story of four friends from San Francisco who had a life-changing epiphany at a Bette Midler concert that led to them to form The Kinsey Sicks in an effort to find joy during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis. Now that the era of Trumpism is upon us, they're sharing their hilarious, inspiring and at times heartbreaking tale, and showing that hatred and deceit can be fought with humor and heart.
This show was a smash hit Off-Broadway at New York's fabled SoHo Playhouse. Critics have described the show as powerful, provocative, delicious, subversive, hilarious, stirring, exquisite, electric, outrageous," heartbreaking," brave, mesmerizing, flawless, superb," "incredibly moving, inventively diabolical, riotously funny, "vitally significant, an absolute must watch," and "theater at its BEST"!
So come join America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet as they lead us all in resisting these new dark times with laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair in an unforgettable new musical exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong vegetables and, of course, Bette Midler.
It is important for all of us to be proactive and ensure that Toledo is creating and maintaining safe spaces and activities that enrich us and allow us to establish and foster the values that we, as a community, want to define Toledo. This performance will benefit Equality Toledo's Community Center Study Fund and help establish the Ohio Theatre and Event Center as a safe space.
