DAMN! I loved this show! I loved the drag queen's performances of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, two actresses who were well known to hate each other, and seeing this played out was hysterical. To witness their behind the scenes making of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" was great too. Hedda Hopper, played by Davina Stewart plays the mediator and instigator well. It's a toss-up between Darrin Hagen as Joan Crawford and Trevor Schmidt who portrayed Bette Davis as to who was spot-on with their portrayal, since both had me howling with laughter and glee. I must make a note to see them again. Catch them while you can.
