Documentary captures spirit of Trannyshack
6 July 2005 | by livinglaser-1See all my reviews

For those who don't know, Trannyshack is an "alternative" drag show in San Francisco that has been a Tuesday night staple since the early-mid 90s (I think). The performances often feature non-traditional drag show numbers (e.g. heavy metal, rap, etc.) and often feature humorous, often scatological stage shows. I've been maybe a dozen times since 2000 so obviously I enjoy the show and for me the movie really did capture the irreverent wittiness of Trannyshack. Also, since I'm only familiar with the on-stage personae of the performers it was interesting to see and hear some of them interviewed at their homes out of drag. Heklina in particular came off as quite bittersweet in contrast to her flamboyant stage personality. I'm not sure how well this documentary would play to someone who had never experienced Trannyshack live, though. Its a bit long and some of the interviews might not be that interesting to the uninitiated.
