WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Thrillpeddlers presents Pearls Over Shanghai, the Cockettes Musical, a comic mock-operetta about white slavery, opium dens, and miscegenation set in the colorful world of 1937 Shanghai. Link Martin parts the bamboo curtain, his politics swept aside by his love of the mystery and intrigue of the Orient. Placing his story at the crossroads of good and evil, his exotic "old sin town" is filled with singing sailors, humorous whores, foolish immortals, handmaidens and henchmen, all taking their places in streets teeming with a mix of foreign aristocrats, opium addicts, and gangland slave-trade czars. The Afterglow Floorshow is an added feature to PEARLS performances to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Cockettes. After each performance in January 2010, Composer/Musical director (and original Cockette), Scrumbly Koldewyn will lead the company in musical numbers from past Cockette's shows.
