A BIT RISQUE BUT A HECK OF A LOT OF FUN!!!!!
Vampire Lesbians of Sodom is a satirical play written by Charles Busch. It features a series of vignettes that deals with the lives of two eponymous immortal vampire lesbians, a creature known as The Succubus who is also known as La Condessa or Magda Legerdemaine, and the virgin-turned-vampire who becomes known as Madelaine Astarte and Madelaine Andrews. The two are locked in eternal, if comic, antagonism after surviving the downfall of the mythical Biblical city in question. Particular conflict occurs when both women arrive in 1920s/1930s Broadway and Hollywood and masquerade as silent film stars. A final scene in Las Vegas in the 1980's sees them finally reach a truce.
Described by The New York Times as having "costumes flashier than pinball machines, outrageous lines, awful puns, sinister innocence, harmless depravity", it was first performed at the Limbo Lounge in Manhattan's East Village in 1984 and moved Off Broadway in June 1985 to the Provincetown Playhouse, where it ran for five years.
The play is directed by Jerry Pilato.
Costume Designer Kristin McReddie.
The Vampire Lesbians Of Sodom is produced through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
