Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, one of the longest-running plays in Off-Broadway history, Psycho Beach Party, and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife have earned Charles Busch renown for his ability to weave popular culture, wicked camp humor, and biting social satire into unusual and uproarious theater. Busch has been acclaimed as the premiere drag star of the American theater, and his work has earned him the Outer Critics’ John Gassner Award for Playwrighting and a Drama Desk Award for Best Play nomination. He has been called “a first-class satirist and farceur” (Mimi Kramer, The New Yorker).
