BenDeLaCreme’s Ready To Be Committed On Her Big New 2022 Tour

She’s calling it a “new” show and it WILL be new to most of the delighted audience members on her big international tour of “BenDeLaCreme is…Ready to Be Committed” but the show itself dates from pre-Covid times and the summer of 2019 when the former Seattle drag star premiered the piece in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

I was IN P-Town that summer but could never manage to get a ticket! It was always sold out! It’s likely to do the same thing when the show hits the road starting April 14th at San Francisco’s Oasis before roaming around the U.S. until June for a U.K. swing then BACK to the U.S. for shows in Portland, OR on July 1st at The Aladdin THEN finally coming to Seattle for a run at The Triple Door from July 5th through the 10th. (Oh, and then a jaunt through Canada to round out the tour.)

“BenDeLaCreme is…Ready to Be Committed” is really an odd show…it’s all about:

After years of people asking the aggressively effervescent queen if she can “please, settle down,” BenDeLaCreme is finally ready to tie the knot in something besides her corset. Now, all she needs is a potential spouse. And a dress. And a cake. And the ability to consider others. 

It’s a relay race to the altar as DeLa dodges pervy Grindr suitors, bitchy wedding-cake-toppers, and the errant arrows of Cupid himself! Join the blushing bride as she tackles the pitfalls of love, marriage, and romance in a limited engagement about the limitations of engagements.

That’s a rather odd through line for a show starring someone who has been happily partnered for several years! But, show business is all about illusion and spinning tall tales!

The solo piece “blends burlesque, comedy, and original music with her signature Terminally Delightful charm.”

Which is smart, because a solo show means you don’t have to share the profits!!! And, Ms BDLC is a smart cookie!
