If you're in the NYC area and wanna check out a funny new play penned by John Epperson (aka Lypsinka), it'd been extended! An excerpt from a NY BLADE review:

Smart, Campy Delight, ‘My Deah’ Is no Drag
‘Lypsinka’ creator pens southern-fried play

Monday, October 30, 2006

Now he’s done it. John Epperson, the artist better known as Lypsinka, has gone and written a stage play, a hilarious southern-fried adaptation of Euripides’ "Medea" at that. It’s not that he hasn’t written dramatic material before: His bio lists him as the author of two stage musicals and a screenplay, and his famous lip-synch collages have always had some kind of narrative (albeit a psychotically surreal one).

"My Deah," however, launches the Lyp into the world of fully fledged queer theater, a new area for him. In his program notes, Epperson acknowledges consciously following the model of legendary Charles Ludlam, the wild creative force behind the Ridiculous Theatrical Company. "My Deah," more than lives up to Ludlam’s legacy, combining screamingly funny campiness with shameless theatricality and gripping intelligence.

Lady Bunny the musical: Synopsis.
Lady Bunny a Mary Tyler Moore-like character goes to the Amazonian rainforest to investigate on a secluded ancient tribe: the Shagalong. She is caught by the men of the tribe and what, at the start, looks like a massive gang bang turns out to be a carnivore feast, with Bunny as a main course! A young American scholar (like Matt Damon or some other hollypoop star...), who is studying that same tribe from afar goes to rescue Lady Bunny and takes her back to the US and eternal fame.
1) Leaving the slums
2) Oh what a jungle!
3) I wish I had diahrrea.
4) Is it a snake or what?
5) Eat me alive.
6) Where's the gravy? (chorus)
7) The rescue.
8) One for my baby and one for his rod.
9) The producer's sofa. (just a couch)
10) Let me be a diva.

I have already started writing the story!

Faviv, what a lovely idea. However, I can't imagine any drag queen with any self respect,would be seen dead trolling about in an Amazonian rainforest, no shops there for a start! and with all that moisture ruining your make-up, your heels getting stuck in the mud, not to mention the creepy crawlies getting into your nooks and crannies.
