I recently took in The Gold Dust Orphans' production of Snow White and the Seven Bottoms, a hilarious comedic take on the classic fairytale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs currently playing at Theatre 80 in NYC through October 26. Written by Ryan Landry, Snow White and the Seven Bottoms is two hours of fistful laughter and fun songs.
The cast, is super talented with each cast member holding their own! Olive Another ("The Magic Mirror") landed one zinger after another and always effortlessly interacted with the audience. Scott Martino was delightful as "The Footman," playing very well off of Varla Jean Merman's "Prince Charming." With the right amount of comey, Varla butched it up for "Prince Charming," convincing me she was really hoping to woo "Snow White," played by Jessica Barstis, who's vocal quality was unreal! I couldn't wait to hear sing her next song! Ryan Landry was the perfect "Evil Queen" especially with his comedic timing. One of my favorite parts of Snow White and the Seven Bottoms were the "cameo" appearances of Cher, Liza Minnelli, Ethel Merman, and a few other gay icons through out the show.
The thing I love most about attending a Gold Dust Orphans' show is that they are not afraid to take chances. They push the envelope, which is what makes them stand-out. Ryan Landry's writing is genius because he forces people to go beyond their comfort zone and that is what makes him unique. Filled with in pop culture jokes and sexual innuendo's, Snow White and the Seven Bottoms takes you deep in the side the forest of this re-imaged fairy tale.
If you like classic fairy tales with a twist, then The Gold Dust Orphans' production of Snow White and the Seven Bottoms is the perfect piece of theatre to take a bite out of the big apple with. Snow White and the Seven Bottoms plays at Theatre 80 in NYC (80 St. Marks Place, between 1st and 2nd Avenue) through October 26! Click here for tickets!
