About This Show

Twist is a new rock musical by Gila Sand, with music by the Scissor Sisters’ songwriter Paul Leschen. It casts a spell of luscious drag, scintillating S & M, twisted humor, delicious candy and other addictive treats. In this fantasy of Victorian England, Dickens’ orphan has grown into an attractive young man with a taste for trouble, caned at the Workhouse, strait jacketed at the Undertakers, and picked up on the street by a wolfish Artful Dodger, portrayed by Brian Charles Rooney (‘Lucy Brown’ in the 2006 Broadway revival of The Threepenny Opera), who brings Twist home to a decidedly different Fagin than ever seen before.

The score of 14 new songs is performed by Paul Leschen & band, live at the Kraine Theater at the following dates and times:

Dec 13 & 14 10:30 pm

Theatermania Review

| | December 21, 2006
This queer spin on the Charles Dickens’ classic Oliver Twist is sexy and often amusing, but also somewhat flawed.
