In one crazy night we follow the life on a small local drag show bar, where the performers dream, deal with losses and personal problems.
A night in a bar with drag shows. There is potential to turn up full volume on the glitter and over-the-top musical numbers, but unfortunately all the drama is in front of the makeup table and in comparison the performances fall kinda flat. Though there are humour. There is also a lot of cat-fights and drama, shouting, wigs, drama, yelling and did we mention drama? Considering its short running time (just shy of 1 hour and 20 minutes) the movie feels surprisingly long, unless off course you get a kick out of watching drags insult each other while applying makeup. What is clearly supposed to be the big moment feels deflated even though the terrible acting from the audience try to convince you it is somewhat a miracle. Way to dull to be a movie about some of the most colourful people in our society.
The character Zaza was a reference to the film and Broadway musical La Cage Au Folles. The main club performer is also a drag Queen named Zaza.
