Briefs: The Second Coming, an American premiere, is a madcap, all-male, gender-bending cabaret – a heart-stopping blend of burlesque, Australian machismo and punkish swagger. Its cast of six Aussies and one New Yorker are powered by a fierce energy as they mix up a potent blend of drag, glamour and athleticism, infused with dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip syncing, sequins, feathers and frocks.
This piece is recommended for ages 16+
