ED2017 5/5 Reviews ED2017 Musical Reviews

Prom Kween (Áine Flanagan Productions in association with Underbelly Untapped)

By | Published on Tuesday 8 August 2017

Wow. I can’t imagine that a dark bunker in the depths of Cowgate has ever been quite so fabulous! As gender non-binary high school teen Matthew tries to figure out his place in the world, he’s got plenty of friends to help him on his way, via the medium of some very camp, very snappy show tunes. Full of pithy jokes, on-point pop culture references and superb surprises, ‘Prom Kween’ is a life-affirming musical that fuses all your favourite high school movies with ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’. Go for the glitter, and leave with a warm, fuzzy feeling as you sashay away. I feel that’s already enough spoilers; just trust me and see it.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
