The Pansy Craze
The recent star of the Hedwig and the Angry Inch National Tour, Nickelodeon’s iCarly, and the Sundance film Before You Know It, Mason Alexander Park is bringing their solo show The Pansy Craze back to Greenroom42 on April 17th at 9:30pm after performing their last show More Than A Woman Or a Man at the venue last December. The Pansy Craze is a musical romp through the history of trans/gender non conformity on stage, beginning with the rarely discussed pansy performers of the 1930’s. If Mister Rogers led a TED Talk about the binarchy and gender performance, complete with songs and fake eyelashes... this would be it. Featuring songs from the height of the pansy and drag scene of the 1920’s… to songs from the musical theatre cannon that pushed the boundaries of gender play like The Rocky Horror Show, La Cage Aux Folles, Hedwig, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, and Boy George’s Taboo, this show will explore the importance that representation... and knowing your history... plays in developing identity from a young age through adulthood. Featuring incredible special guests to be announced. Directed by Hunter Bird and including members from the Hedwig National Tour band, this is an evening of education, shenanigans, and non-corona related sniffles not to be missed!
