Thrillpeddlers are set to present Vice Palace: The Last Cockettes Musical, April 22-July 31. Russell Blackwood will direct.

This revival of the 1972 musical revue will be presented as part of Thrillpeddlers' fourth annual Theatre of the Ridiculous Revival. The show has a book by Martin Worman and music composed by Scrumbly Koldewyn. It is loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Masque of the Red Death" and the 1964 Roger Corman film of that name.

Joshua Devore, best known as former porn star Tober Brandt, will play Ricciolini alongside Leigh Crow (Divina), Flynn DeMarco (Goldoni), Birdie-Bob Watt (Vagina Dentata), Steven Satyricon (Niccolini), Eric Tyson Wertz (Bella), Ste Fishell (Tonio), L. Ron Hubby (Madame X), T.J. Buswell (Paulo), James Toczyl (Polo), and Russell Blackwood (Lucretia).

Vice Palace was the final stage production of gender-bending theatrical troupe the Cockettes.
