DISTORTED DIZNEE is an outrageous Las Vegas-style parody revue of some of America's most beloved animated classics. Come be Part of Our World as a troupe of fabulous drag queens takes you on a twisted -- and very adult -- journey, catapulting you back to your childhood into a Magical Kingdom where dreams come true. This ever-evolving 75-minute non-stop extravaganza features high-energy dance numbers, comedy, dazzling costumes and lip-syncing "ladies"-- with a bit of Cher, Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel and Rihanna thrown in for good measure!
In DISTORTED KRISTMESS, all of your holiday favorites are run past a dirty funhouse mirror. Highlights include The 12 Drunks of Christmas, a twisted take on Let It Snow, I'm Dreaming of A White Trash Christmas, and a holiday tribute to Bea Arthur, as well as a special visit from The Port Authority Cockettes, an extremely downscale version of the celebrated Radio City Rockettes.

The DISTORTED drag show series began in March 2012 with the premiere of DISTORTED DIZNEE. After gaining a cult following, it spawned the holiday-themed DISTORTED KRISTMESS, as well as the Great White Way parody DISTORTED BROADWAY, the Silver Screen-themed DISTORTED HOLLYWOOD and the special Gay Pride extravaganza DISTORTED PRIDE. The series was created by Dallas DuBois, a trained musical theater actor whose credits have included film, television and Off-Broadway productions. Dallas was selected as Next Magazine's Who's Next 2010, a Glammy Award nominee, Miss Grove Hotel, and Miss Fire Island Contest's Most Popular 2009.
