Close friends, Queens, Television… Lend Me Your Eras!
Heigh-Ho, My Merry Rainbow Tribe! Bobby Patrick, your RAINBOW Reviewer below. Placing the silent T in cabareT to bring you all the T!
Effectively, my Lambkins, Wednesday night’s performance of JACKIEVISION: THE TOUR at The Greenroom 42 sent bundles of laughs, and tunes, and spoofs OH MY! RuPaul’s Drag Race finalist, Jackie Cox, was in high-quality fettle as she took to the phase to walk, sing and joke her way by means of television’s golden, silver, and streaming ages. See, that’s the premise of the demonstrate – taking her cue from her latest Tv set fave, Jackie kicks off spending homage to the Incredible Kathryn Hahn‘s Agnes from WANDAVISION by dressing the component and staying wicked as effectively as wickedly humorous. Jackie’s eyesight is a drag ship-up meets a STAR TREK whiplash close to the sun to just take her audience back again in time and then ahead in time in a nifty stroll-by of the historical past of the television reveals we all dove into all through our latest… PANdicament. Getting caught the lady’s act as component of the HELL’s KITCHENETTES, a restricted, gifted, trio of drag professionals whose vocals impressed as considerably as their manufacturing values, we understood likely in that this drag diva had the pipes to sing her way by way of. What a pleasure it was to NOT be dissatisfied on that entrance simply because receiving to hear Jackie solo was a address to the ears. The woman genuinely can sing out Louise. Incorporate to that her great lipsynch figures and fantastically timed stand-up comedy and what we got was pure drag. Bobby completely understands that lipsynch is an artwork and that it ain’t just mouthing the terms, and that stand up is an artwork that is additional than telling just one-liners, but when a queen can lip-it AND sing it and joke it in a seamless 90-moment cabaret set, then you most certainly have our notice.
Sometimes carrying out her individual spoof lyrics to acquainted figures and other situations belting the tracks as meant with electrical power and panache, Jakie moved from the 1950s to the contemporary-working day halting off in just about every period to make excellent costume improvements and a hilarious mishmash out of the tv wasteland. Of distinct be aware to this latent Trekie, was her SWINGING ON A STAR send out-up of the 1960s very best contribution to tv, STAR TREK. Absolutely decked out as Range 1, the first initial officer of the Starship Organization, La Jackie confirmed us her nerd, comprehensive with lyrics that incorporated terms like Vulcan, Ferengi, and Klingon (Qapla!). Jackie’s 1980s brought on the Electricity OF Adore, FOOTLOOSE, and WHAT A Sensation medley that she belted from the stage then bolted into the viewers to dance and engage in her way via the entire property, offering her all for her peeps. No matter if she was participating her viewers from the phase or from down in the stalls with the proles, Jackie’s power was felt by all and her leisure warp factor was 10.
As it turns out, my dears, this distinct Wednesday, Oct 20th was Ms. Cox’s 11th Dragaversary, as she 1st donned the heels and wigs on that night time in 2010 – do not choke my angels! That WAS 11 yrs in the past – and each one of us present for this show felt a contact much more delight for getting at TGR42. Now, we ought to get back again to the lady’s singing, mainly because just one have to say a thing about her beautifully coronary heart-tugging rendition of DISNEYLAND. Howard Ashman‘s lyric “…on a western breeze, Magic carpet remember to, have me away.” to Marvin Hamlisch‘s notes in Jackie Cox’s voice arrived at out to one particular and all, conjuring recollections of us as Tv set glued young children on the lookout through that ever-modifying portal at tales that designed us all aspiration of magic, of space, of the wild, wild west, of adventures to much off lands that time forgot. Is JACKIEVISION: THE TOUR a clearly show for everyone? You wager your sweet daily life it is because drag is an artwork that is for everyone and Jackie Cox deserves a genuine queen’s crown for her general performance, but all Minor Bobby can give her here is…
