Dragapella starring the Kinsey Sicks

The Garden of Unearthly Delights, Adelaide Fringe

Review by Honey B

The Kinsey Sicks are much more than a drag act. These four drag queens were unashamedly ballsy, singing bawdy numbers with great abandon and adding plenty of sharp satire along the way – much of it with a political bent. Named after the Kinsey scale of human sexuality, which grades homosexuality as a six, the foursome can certainly sing up an a cappella storm. The feisty gals, who describe themselves as “dragapella’’, include the height-challenged Rachel, the ditzy Trampolina, Winnie is the smart one and Trixie is glamourous and fierce. These songbirds hark back to the 1950s-1960s, thus their beauty barbershop bent and sky-high wigs. Their style of musical comedy is over-the-top with numbers including We Arm the World, Unnatural Woman, Tranny Boy and one for the Aussies – Waltzing My Dildo (which the audience loved). This was a smart, hilarious, fun night out.
