Onstage sits a strange figure surrounded by blankets, holding a Ben and Jerry’s, and crying over the latest ‘will they won’t they?’ produced by Netflix.
This is Crystal Bollix and it’s now their turn to lead a Rom-Com. Will they (or won’t they) survive?
Join drag artist Crystal Bollix as they take on their greatest enemy yet … Romantic Comedies. Fall in love with this new cabaret extravaganza all about the pitfalls of chick-flicks and Colin Firth. Watch as they navigate the tricky world of rom-com masculinity, femininity and beyond. Expect gorgeous costumes, dazzling lip sync, and maybe a surprise guest or two…
