About

New York City’s Premiere Drag Queen Hedda Lettuce presents VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, an interactive event the likes of Rocky Horror meets Mystery Science Theater with barbed wit. With comedy and commentary, Hedda highlights the highs, lows, and absurdities of the cinematic take on the 1960s bestseller chronicling the ups and downs of three young women in show business, as they become consumed by fame, booze, men and pills. Well-bred Anne Welles (Barbara Parkins), Broadway star Helen Lawson (Susan Hayward) and up-and-coming performer Neely O'Hara (Patty Duke) propel their careers, but as the pressures of fame and failed romance take their toll on all three women, they take refuge in food, sex, liquor, and pills -- especially Neely, who becomes downright monstrous thanks to the titular "dolls" -- the uppers and downers to which she becomes hopelessly addicted.
