For far too long, straight people have laid claim to the oceans, most notably with the annual TV tradition of Shark Week. Just in time for the aquatic celebration (and the opening of the New York Aquarium's new shark wing), a fierce trio of NYC drag queens are taking on the easiest targets of marine life, with beloved divas Blake Deadly, Tina Burner and Kiko Soiree reading hammerheads and great whites to filth. We're crazy about this lineup: Deadly has been serving outrageous lip-syncs at venues like the Museum of Sex all year; Burner is a certified legend, with a starring role on the docuseries Shade: Queens of NYC; and in 2017, we named Soiree one of the LGBTQ POC comedians you should know right now. New performance and party space Caveat enforces a proviso of educational content at all shows, so expect to learn something about the creatures of the sea as the queens cut them down. Dress like a Vaporeon and stay out of the line of fire!
