The Big Hair, Big Mouth, Big Fat Fun Show to showcase drag talent

By Ann Dwyer

Shows like "RuPaul's Drag Race" have put a new spin on drag. Pulled out of underground clubs, and into the national spotlight--because they will never miss a good spotlight--audiences can see what an art it really can be.

You may just pick up a few makeup tips.

Trust me..this is going to be an amazing show with some amazing entertainers. And..it's fun! That's all. Nothing to be afraid of, just good fun. If you've never been to a drag show, you will want to be there to experience it for yourself! Yep...maybe not for everyone, but the Cavern Club is 4 clubs under one roof on 3 floors..so there is bound to be something else for you if this isn't your cup of tea. However..for the rest of you, stop out and check it out and I am sure you'll get a laugh, have a good time, and see a show unlike anything you've ever experienced before!

No open flames within 100 feet of venue for fear of hairspray-induced explosion.
