The Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, written by Charles Busch, is a fantastic send-up of vampiric tales and actress's vanity. The story begins in Sodom, transports us to 1920's Hollywood, and drops us on a modern stage. The rivalry begins in Sodom where a guard is lamenting his social life and a succubus is awaiting a sacrificial virgin. The virgin is turned into a succubus and a 2000 year battle of feminine wiles, toothy marks, and blackmail ensues. It is a hilarious love-hate relationship that sustains them both.
Charles Busch, also known as the drag queen Mary Dale is best known for his quirky and campy spoofs. He is considered a treasure in the Off-Broadway community and was granted a special award for career achievements by the Drama Desk in 2003. He has written such classics as Psycho Beach Party, The Tale of the Allergist' s Wife, and the short-lived Broadway musical, Taboo. The Tale of the Allergist's Wife opened on Broadway in 2000. This was Busch's first play for a main stream audience. The audience loved it and it ran for 777 performances. In 2001, the play received a Tony Award Nomination for Best Play. His newest play, The Third Story was presented in 2008 by MCC. In addition, he has appeared in many films and continues to hone his craft as an actor.
