Originally debuted by San Francisco’s world famous gender bending psychedelic theater group The Cockettes in the late 60’s, Pearls Over Shanghai is a fever dream in drag, an acid tripping musical escapade through opium dens and whorehouses, with gallons of glitter expended on the way. Though The Cockettes disintegrated in the early 70’s, San Francisco’s Thrillpeddlers revived the infamous production in 2010, to rave reviews. The hallucinatory spectacle returns to The Hypnodrome Theater for its 5th Anniversary Revival Production.
