MargOH! CHANNING IS TIPSY! is a deconstruction of drag, from a woman’s point of view, through storytelling, song, and the one thing we all have in common, dysfunction. BT Shea combines the art form of drag with the struggle of the women who made him the fighter he is today. His MargOH! takes us on a journey of trials and tribulations, as she reminisces about her family, gay lovers, the ups and downs of her career while tackling such subjects as rape, incest, race, political correctness, the power of Liza Minnelli, and most of all, survival by any means necessary. TIPSY! features MargOH!’s long time Gayiance’ MAN-ee Champagne and Diamond Daiquiri as back up diva’s - The MargOH!-tini’s.MargOH! CHANNING IS TIPSY! is written and created by writer, comedian and performance artist BT Shea with musical direction by Jarad Astin, costumes by Planet Pepper and Direction/special material by Thom Fogarty.
