about

Cabaret songs from the "Gay 90's". Originally produced as a fund raiser for the Philadelphia LBGT community center in 1993 under the title REGALIA, this musical comedy revue played for over ten years in Philadelphia and New York. In a world before you tube and cell phone cameras and Insta-twit this show played intimate cabaret settings that allowed us to laugh at ourselves and celebrate the unique camp aspect of 20th century gay life. Pageantry truly does beget pageantry.

Special Thanks: Jack Bloeser,Steven Capsuto, Lona Kozik, Thomas Pileggi, David Powell, Penquin Place, Jilline Ringle, Rob Soslow, Todd Waddington & Jack Woodhead.

Track Name: Butch Mary
Ricky:

WHEN DID YOU GET TO
BE SO BUTCH, MARY?
WHEN DID YOU START TO
ACT SO STRAIGHT?
THE LAST TIME THAT I SAW YOU
IT WAS JUST THE OTHER DAY,
AND I HAVE GOT TO SAY,
YOU WERE LOOKIN' MIGHTY GAY!

WHERE DID YOU GET THE
HIGH TOP BOOTS, HELEN?
WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO KID TONIGHT?
WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL US
WITH THAT STUBBLE ON YOUR CHEEK?
THE WAY YOU HOLD YOUR CIGARETTE,
THE WAY YOU TAKE A LEAK!

WHEN DID YOU GET TO
BE SO BUTCH, MARY?
WHEN DID YOU START
TO GUZZLE BUD?
I USED TO SEE YOU DANCIN'
WITH A LACY PAPER FAN,
TONIGHT I DID A DOUBLE TAKE-
I THOUGHT YOU WERE A MAN!

WHERE DID YOU BUY YOUR
BASEBALL CAP, HELEN?
WHERE DID YOU LEARN
TO SCRATCH YOUR NUTS?

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT COMPUTERS
AND YOUR FAVORITE FOREIGN WAR.
YOU MUST BE AFTER SOMETHING
THAT YOU NEVER HAD BEFORE.
INSTEAD OF SINGING
THE SONGS FROM MAME,
YOU'RE SINGING
THE HOCKEY SCORE!
WHAT'S A MODERN
QUEEN TO DO?
MARY, IS IT REALLY YOU?

YOU'RE TELLING EVERYBODY
THAT YOUR GIVEN NAME IS "SPIKE”.
IT'S EVERY ONE'S PREROGATIVE
TO DRESS THE WAY THEY LIKE,
BUT LISTEN TO YOUR SISTER SUE,
YOU LOOK MORE
LIKE A DYKE!
WHAT'S A MODERN
QUEEN TO DO?
MARY, IS IT REALLY-
MARY, IS IT REALLY-
MARY, IS IT REALLY YOU?
Track Name: Reunited Sister Act
Jane:
SHE CAN HARDLY SING,
SHE SURE CAN’T DANCE,
HERE SHE IS-
MY SISTER BLANCHE,
IN OUR REUNITED SISTER ACT TONIGHT.

Blanche:
SHE’S QUITE A BITCH.
AND VERY BOLD,
JANE STILL THINKS
SHE’S SIX YEARS OLD,
IN OUR REUNITED SISTER ACT TONIGHT.

Jane:
MY HAIR WAS ALWAYS CURLIER.

Blanche:
YOUR HIPS WERE ALWAYS BURLIER.

Jane:
YOU FORGET WHAT I DID TO YOU EARLIER,
SHUT UP BITCH AND SING!

Blanche:
A HOLLYWOOD LEGEND-

Jane:
A HOLLYWOOD TRAMP-

Both:
PUT US TOGETHER AND WE SPELL CAMP,
IN OUR REUNITED SISTER ACT TONIGHT.

Blanche:
You know Bette, I thought Vivian Leigh was perfect in GONE WITH THE WIND.

Jane:
Is that so? Selznik promised that role to me—then gave it to Vivian Leigh! Tell me, how much preparation did you have to do for that role in STRAIGHT JACKET?

Blanche:
A helluva lot more than you had to do for your role in JEZEBEL!


Jane:
Is that a fact? Who taught you how to act Crawford, Madame Touseaud?

Blanche:
You know you’d be a lot prettier if you let those little bangs grow-

Jane:
And you’d be a lot more entertaining if you weren’t in that chair—
But you ARE in that chair Blanche, you ARE!!!!!

Blanche:
A HOLLYWOOD LEGEND-

Jane:
A HOLLYWOOD TRAMP-

Both:
PUT US TOGETHER AND WE SPELL CAMP
IN OUR REUNITED SISTER ACT TONIGHT!

Jane:
Say goodnight, Blanche.

Blanche:
(shouting through the duct tape.) Good night, Blanche.

Both:
IN OUR REUNITED SISTER ACT TONIGHT!

Track Name: Tired of Being Gay
Ricky

I'VE MARCHED IN ALL THE PRIDE PARADES.
I'VE RAISED MY VOICE IN SONG.
IN THE INTERIM,
I JOINED THE GYM
TO KEEP MY BODY STRONG.
I'VE DONE IT ALL.
I'VE SEEN IT ALL.
FORGIVE ME WHEN I SAY,
I'M TIRED OF BEING GAY.

I'VE PARTIED TIL THE COWS CAME HOME
WITH GLITTER IN MY HAIR.
I'VE MET THE BUNCH,
FOR SUNDAY BRUNCH,
IN JUST MY UNDER WARE.
I'VE STRUCK A POSE.
AND FILLED MY NOSE.
I'VE DANCED THE NIGHT AWAY,
NOW I'M TIRED OF BEIN’ GAY

I'VE RIPPED MY ABS.
I'VE RIPPED MY JEANS.
I'VE ANSWERED ADS IN MAGAZINES.
I'VE POSTERED WALLS AND FLYERED CARS.
I'VE TWO-STEPPED
IN THE COUNTRY BARS.
I'VE SPENT MY RENT
IN SHOPPING MALLS,
I'VE GROWN A BEARD
AND SHAVED MY BALLS!

I'VE DONE ALL THAT A MAN CAN DO
TO KEEP HIS SOCIAL STANDING,
BUT OH, MY DEARS
YOU TRENDY QUEERS
ARE JUST SO DAMNED DEMANDING!
I'VE HAD MY FUN,
AND NOW I'M UNINSPIRED
AND BLASÉ,
AND SO TIRED OF BEIN’ GAY.

I KNEW SOMEDAY WHEN ALL
WAS SAID AND DONE
I'D HAVE TO PAY,
BUT WHO KNEW THAT
I'D HAVE TO SEND
THE CHECK TO DORIAN GREY!
I'M STILL A HOMO DEEP INSIDE
ALTHOUGH MY SPIRIT'S SAGGIN',
I MUST CONFESS,
I'M JUST A MESS,
MY FAGGOT ASS IS DRAGGIN'.
“CALGON, TAKE ME AWAY!”
I'M TIRED OF BEING GAY.
YOU KNOW I’M TIRED,
SO TIRED,
TIRED OF BEIN’ GAY.

IT MAY BE HARSH, IT MAY BE COLD,
