Well there is only one word for this – ‘fanbloodytastic’ – what a show!
As I have said before Macy and myself have a lot of things in common and the thrill of this show is one of them.
It all starts when you buy your tickets, then its decision time. What shall I wear? Which character am I dressing up as? What make up shall I use? The list of ‘what if’s’ is endless.
The day of the show arrives and it’s time to prepare. The vodka is flowing and us girls are putting our make up on – bold smouldering eyes lashes long enough to cause a hurricane, lips bright and inviting and of course glitter everywhere: face body and hair, we are shimmering stars waiting to party.
The outfits are put on, a French maid is my choice; a Basque for Emily, pushing her bouncing beauties up threatening to spill out for all to see; and Sian is the glitter queen.
With giggles and laughs we arrive at the New Theatre Cardiff and wow, all the people in so many costumes was a sight to see! The amount of men dressed up as Doctor Frankenfurter in Basques and heels is incredible. To see that everyone is accepted for themselves is just wonderful, no judgements on anyone, its a shame that this attitude is not everywhere at all times.
We chat and laugh with complete strangers as we drink our vodkas before the show starts, nip to the loo quickly as the bell rings for you to get your seats, its time : lights dim, people cheer and the show begins.
We sing, laugh, heckle and dance from start to finish – it’s superb! Lights flash, music belts out so loudly you can feel the vibrations through your feet, it’s certainly a night to remember.
So if you get the opportunity to see this show go, dress up, have fun and be totally outrageous – that’s what its all about. Be like Macy, embrace the fun in life as we only live once so go and enjoy it to the fullest.
