The Dolls Want To Take You On
An Acid Trip of Psychedelic Proportions!
“Angels of Light” proudly presents the highs and lows of The Cockettes
(Albuquerque, N.M.) – Take an LSD trip to 1969 with The Dolls through their brand new, original play, Angels of Light: The Practically True Story of The Cockettes.
It’s a tale about glitter, glam and ultimate hippie hell! It’s the true-life tale about The Cockettes, San Francisco’s infamous gender-bending druggie drag troupe, as they soar to the dizzying heights of fame only to sink to the very depths of despair! It’s a powdery portrait that only The Dolls can portray!
Never before have the adventures of Hibiscus, Goldie, Scumbly, Sylvester and the rest of the legendary free-love and free-theatre genderfuck gang been so lovingly and lavishly presented on the stage. This production, penned by The Dolls co-founder Kenneth Ansloan, is based both on the real behind-the-scenes history and on-stage antics of The Cockettes. The Dolls’ Angels of Light even replicates The Cockettes’ spirited but disastrous New York City debut and their short film lampoon of Tricia Nixon’s wedding.
The Dolls, Albuquerque’s premiere drag ensemble, pay tribute to the trailblazing Cockettes, their ethos and style, in this premiere play. Join them in celebrating the all-time archetypes of theatre anarchy!
