Russ Meyer Meets Hedwig in Drag Rock Musical Comedy ABOVE AND BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE ULTRA SHOWGIRLS
After sold out runs in San Francisco and New York the cult hit drag rock musical comedy Above and Beyond the Valley of the Ultra Showgirls returns for a command performance at Oasis - 12 nights only! Written by D’Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Disastrous!) along with the post-punk art band Enrique (in which Drollinger was a member) Ultra Showgirls opens January 26th with a mini-stadium rock spectacular, complete with a five piece live band.
Fame, sex, drug addiction, prostitution, live go-go girls, rock-n-roll, cat fights, murder, seduction, betrayal… and that’s just in the dressing room. Imagine Russ Meyer, Liberace and Charles Manson collaborating on a rock musical starring "Jem and the Holograms" and you have an idea of what awaits you in Above and Beyond the Valley of the Ultra Showgirls. Shamelessly inspired by "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" and "Showgirls", this over-the-top dark musical comedy has enough poor taste references to keep any B-movie junky erect. The story follows SUPER VIXEN – a struggling all-girl rock band with big dreams, big boobs, big hair and big everything else. Chablis, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer claw their way up the underside of the music industry where they meet low life record company exec Mr. Richard Face, who promises them super-stardom. When Dick talks Gewürztraminer into leaving her band mates, she changes her name to Sherry, hooks up with even trashier back up girls and becomes an overnight sensation. Naturally, her rejected friends embark on a painful and hilarious downward spiral of sex, drugs... and revenge!
"One of the most exhilarating, hysterical, outrageous shows... Expect lots of raunch, simulated sex, crystal meth and murdered Girl Scouts. But it’s also totally tight and professional, and almost everyone who sees it drags their friends back the next week."Metropolitan Magazine
"It’s not surprising that the show has won over even musical theater neophytes and non-fans... a hilarious 75 or so minutes of rock ‘n’ roll cheese combined with just enough tawdry narrative." Bay Area Reporter $25 - $35
