Varla Jean Merman is back, making a little White (Trash) Music for all to hear

A Special Pre-View Review by Jason Pendergast

Everyone’s favorite Love Child of Ernest Borgnine and Ethel Merman is back to our little white sand beach.  The self-proclaimed creature that put the “EEK” in “chic” will once again be enchanting her fans at Maine Street with a special little dedication to that American Tradition itself, the songs of the south.  (Well NOT that Song of the South- her promoters would never stand firmly behind that….  err never mind.)

Having started seeing the lovely and talented Ms. Merman in Provincetown 15 years ago (when we both were only 6 years old, of course), I have always found her shows a testament to just how much a guy can take in one sitting.   She truly shows how much she can stretch the limits of one’s …err.. imagination.  Whether it be a bunch of dancing mushroom heads with banjos, or her version of Princess Leia being chased by Jabba or even sharing her Soprano skills while swallowing Chez-whiz, there is nothing Varla can’t do to bring the boys to their knees…. in laughter.

In all seriousness, Varla is the special kind of talent- a drag queen who knows how to use double entendres the way others will use the “F” word to describe another kind of doubling… with much more humorous results.  Her shtick is clever more than traditionally raunch and her shows have a (somewhat) meaningful theme that you can almost convince yourself is important to the survival of humanity.  If that  isn’t art, I don’t know what is!

I don’t want to spoil her antics this year, but be assured that if you have ever seen her and enjoyed her performances, this show (a hoot last year in Ptown) should be right up your alley.  Those of you whom have never been indoctrinated, what the heck are you waiting for?

Varla is coming to Mainestreet Cabaret Saturday May 27th and Sunday May 28th.  For tickets and showtimes, contact
