About this show

Set during Medieval times, The Emperor's New Codpiece cheerfully shuns historical accuracy as the curtain rises on the Castle Club, top "night spot for fops" in all the land. For years, drag shows have been the main attraction, but in a cost-cutting move, the owner decrees that the queens are to be replaced by the club's go-go dancers. The only queenly performer to survive the cut is the club's regal hostess Melinda who's out to sabotage the go-go dancers by convincing them to wear crotch-hugging codpieces made out of an invisible fabric that she swears only fools cannot see. Once the dancers appear on stage they'll be fired for being nude and the club will have no choice but to bring back the queens!
