As Puerto Vallarta continues to grow as a city, it is attracting more and more international talent to perform on the stages of Vallarta’s numerous theaters. Currently performing through November at Stages Act II are the Kinsey Sicks and we recently had a chance to see their show.
Founded in 1993 by Ben Schatz, a Harvard-trained civil rights lawyer and former Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Medical Association, the Kinsey Sicks are an a cappella group who bill themselves as “America’s Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet.” They have performed around the world, including a Las Vegas residency and off-Broadway in the critically acclaimed DRAGAPELLA! Starring the Kinsey Sicks at New York’s Studio 54. That production received a nomination for a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical of 2001and a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Lyrics for lyricist Ben Schatz.
Their current show, Things You Shouldn’t Say, is described as a lot of “laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair in an unforgettable new musical exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong vegetables and, of course, Bette Midler” and it certainly was that and more. The show is fast-paced and very witty, but has many poignant moments, particularly from Ben Shatz as “Rachel”, discussing life in San Francisco in the height of the AIDS crisis. But those very emotional moments are then swept up in a whirl of cheeky lyrics served with a side of camp, for a very engaging show.
The Kinsey Sicks will perform various dates through November and tickets can be purchased online here: http://actiientertainment.com/Kinsey-Sicks.php
