A fierce drag queen and her anxious alter-ego join forces to fight tragedy and celebrate queerness.
about the production
It's time for Queer Lady M's cabaret! Performed by gender-fluid artist Shane Gabriel, Lady Macbeth comes to life like never experienced before. There's outrageous lip-syncing, cheeky dancing and sassy conversation as Queer Lady M invites you to enter her world of passion and shade. But what happens when the show is over, when Shane removes the makeup and puts Lady M to bed? What stories will come to light as Shane invites us into his twilight world? A fierce drag queen and her anxious alter-ego join forces to fight tragedy and celebrate queerness.
