Pecs Drag Kings' The 80s Show transferred to Soho Theatre for a entirely sold-out run in December 2017.

 

After a sell-out run earlier in the year, the Drag Kings of Pecs are back with the hotly-anticipated encore of their smash-hit 80’s cabaret.

Packed with power suits, Prince tribute acts, and New Romantic pretty boys, this show sticks it to the man and doesn’t hold back.

Join the all-singing, all-dancing Drag King collective as they bring our beloved queer icons back to life and get us ready to fight the power.

As well as an offie nomination (TBC Category), the production received glowing reviews:

"It’s sensual and political, deconstructing all the rules around gender and attrction with a quick wit and a top soundtrack. [...] It’s smart and subversive but also sexy and fun. Freddie Mercury would have been proud" - Theatre Bubble, *****

"Darkly hilarious ... refuses to take the easy way out ... unexpected poignancy" - The Stage, ****

 "Blown away by the swagger and smarts... A sensational night." - Diva Mag

"Frankly unmissable" - The Spy in the Stalls, *****

"The show is a must-see." - LondonTheatre1, *****
