BenDeLaCreme Going on Tour With BenDeLaCreme Is…Ready to Be Committed
International drag superstar BenDeLaCreme has announced dates and venues for the North American tour of her solo show, BenDeLaCreme Is…Ready to Be Committed, which will kick off at San Francisco's Oasis April 13-17. Tour stops include Boston, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, New York, Dallas, and Chicago.
In Ready to Be Committed, DeLa sends up the institution of marriage with her own terminally delightful mixture of songs, jokes, burlesque, and puppetry.
TheaterMania's review of the premiere of Ready to Be Committed at the Laurie Beechman Theatre called the show "nonstop laughs" and enthused, "DeLa has a special ability to convey big concepts and arcane history through vaudevillian spectacle."
