Our Queen and Savior, “Her Empress Divaship, Our Lady of the Holy Cherdonna” (or, just “Cherdonna Shinatra” to her legions of fans) is back with a brand spanking new show which opens this week at On The Boards. KISSING LIKE BABIES is the latest installment in a series of dance/theater/art performance pieces Cherdonna, aka Jody Kuehner, has been working on for the last three years. It opens this Thursday, October 12th for ONE weekend only so it behooves you to snatch up tickets before they’re all gone. Seattle’s premiere bio drag queen has more fans than a Vornado showroom in August!

Pucker up, Seattle…Cherdonna is blowing us a kiss for October!

From her press release:

OPENING WEEK!

ABOUT THE WORKExplore the infantilization of the feminine. Embroil in the conundrum of being. Gape at the amazing circumstances within which we exist. Trace the ties from birth to death and back again with the help of drag queen Cherdonna, a chorus of adult toddlers, and a seven-piece brass marching band. Jody Kuehner is a queer, fem, female, professionally trained contemporary dancer who uses dance traditions, clowning, drag, theater, comedy, performance art, camp, pop culture, feminism, absurdity, and subversive commentary to make art.

Kissing Like Babies is partially funded by the New England Foundation for the Arts National Dance Project Presentation Grant and the National Endowment for the Arts. It was developed at On the Boards through the Performance Production Program, made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with additional support from Max Lakritz.
