Kinsey Sicks at the Herbst 7/19 and 7/26
- Hello A Cappellians!
Just writing to let you know that THE KINSEY SICKS, America's Favorite
Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet, will be making a rare San Francisco appearance at the
Herbst Theatre, 2 nights only -- Saturday, July 19 and Saturday, July 26 at 8
THE KINSEY SICKS are longtime San Francisco favorites, having launched their
career with a street performance at a Muni station almost ten years ago.
Since then THE KINSEY SICKS have toured extensively in the U.S. and
internationally, and had their own widely acclaimed Off-Broadway show at New York’s
legendary Studio 54. That production garnered critical praise, including a Drama Desk
Award nomination for Best Lyrics, and multiple Lucille Lortel Award
nominations, including for Best Off-Broadway Musical of 2001.
Combining award-winning a cappella singing, wicked satire and over-the-top
drag, THE KINSEY SICKS have made a strong impression in the worlds of theater
and comedy. The Houston Chronicle called THE KINSEY SICKS’ lyrics "clever enough
for Ira Gershwin or E.Y. Harburg." The Advocate called THE KINSEY SICKS
"gut-wrenchingly funny" and the New York Times praised their "voices sweet as
birdsong." Billboard Magazine called THE KINSEY SICKS "one of the more uniquely
original (and thoroughly fun and entertaining) acts we have encountered in
years . . . this is one act that should not be missed."
Nonetheless, there remain unsuspecting members of both the public and the
media who have not yet experienced THE KINSEY SICKS in their full glory. For this
reason, the girls have offered gentle, subliminal encouragement for the
still-hesitant by entitling their current show, "THE KINSEY SICKS: GET OFF YOUR FAT
ASS AND SEE OUR SHOW!"
"FAT ASS" will be THE KINSEY SICKS’ first Bay Area appearance in 2003. It
will include a raft of brand new, gorgeous and appalling songs as well as a
selection of longstanding if inexplicable audience favorites. Tickets are
available through City Box Office, (415) 392-4400 and www.cityboxoffice.com. For more
