Kinsey Sicks At Jorgensen Center

America’s favorite drag queen quartet, The Kinsey Sicks are bringing their pitch perfect dragapella harmony & razor-sharp wit to the stage at UConn’s Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday October 30th for a presentation of their critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway smash “Things You Shouldn’t Say”. Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the group is hailed by critics as “deliciously devious”, “hilarious” & “poignant”. The show is an over-the-top-drag musical revue filled with outlandish camp & biting political satire; an outrageous romp celebrating the history of a group of friends who came together over their mutual love for Bette Midler & ended up creating a world-wide phenomenon known as The Kinsey Sicks. Founding member Benjamin Schatz (Rachel), a Harvard-trained civil rights lawyer & former Director of the National Gay & Lesbian Medical Association also served as a presidential advisor on HIV issues. He created the first national AIDS legal project & authored Bill Clinton’s HIV policy during the 1992 presidential campaign. A couple of years after that fateful Bette Midler concert, Schatz decided to leave his career for “dragapella.” Of the career change, Ben stated, “Making people laugh is much more fun than suing them & no less effective in making them think.” Schatz is joined by Nathan Marken, Jeff Manabat & Spencer Brown, creating the characters of “Winnie,” “Trixie,” and “Trampolina,” respectively. Doors open at 7P & the performance begins at 7:30P. There will be a special post-performance Meet & Greet with the artists. Meet & Greet admission is $30 with attendance limited to 100.
