Why See Women Behind Bars?


Women Behind Bars Returns With A Drag Twist

A loving send up of the female prison exploitation films of the 1950s, the cult hit Off-Broadway musical Women Behind Bars revels in the glories of B movie tropes and over the top gags, but tempers things with a searing social commentary on the justice system, Experience the beloved satire's black humour and outrageous characterisations during its hotly anticipated Los Angeles revival, brought to the Montalban stage with a delicious drag twist.

Featuring Cry Baby bombshell Traci Lords, RuPaul's Drag Race royalty Eureka O'Hara, Chi Chi DeVayne and Thorgy Thor,  and drag-legends-in-their-own-right Mink Stole, Poppy Fields and Miss Coco Peru, the high octane production transports the audience back to a big house in the 1960s where a host of feisty females do their best to survive. With hair as as high as their stilettos, the ensemble braves violence, heartbreak and an unfair system as they sing and dance through their pain.
