Snap Honey is a hilarious interactive comedy with some elements of melodrama about international female impersonator, Vageena Honey, who returns home to get interviewed and perform her one woman show DRAG WHORE about her rise to fame. The production takes place in two locations at the same time—-Vageena's one woman show at The Fox Theatre and the set of talk show host Dr Jones, a “Dr Phil type” on his popular show INTROSPECT. Told in flashbacks, Snap Honey gives an in-depth view of Vageena's life from her love of the Supremes as a boy to his sexual torment from a high school bully and her first time performing as Vageena. Lastly, the audience is part of the production in various scenes involving her one woman show and the talk show. THE PLAY IS 90 MINUTES WITH NO INTERMISSION, HAS ADULT SITUATIONS AND BRIEF NUDITY. Showtimes June 1 9pm (PREVIEW); June 8 8pm; June 10 10:30pm; June 13 7:30pm and June 22 6pm

I'm not sure why I was supposed to care about a drag queen who wasn't very good or interesting. It me of those horrible, horrible AMERICAN IDOL auditions, in which the person's deluded about their talent and insists upon his/her greatness. Some of the supporting cast were very good, and the authors tried to find some depth, but it all remained superficial. It's not a train wreck, it's just an ill-conceived mess.

WHAT I LIKED I enjoyed Vageena's performance as well as her father and mother's. You're given hundred dollar bills to throw at a stripper on stage which makes you part of the action. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE Tech light cues when not on point, many times during the show Vageena is in the shadows and the spotlight is on the wrong side of the stage. The script seemed to be improvised at times and the supporting roles undeveloped. I wish I had seen more of her father/son relationship more in depth and the reasons why Vageena was picked on by her father in order to make their reunion at the end of the show more authentic and relatable. MY OVERALL IMPRESSION Vageena Honey makes an honest attempt at holding it all together. A drag queen goes on a talk show to tell her story about surviving an abusive father, bullies and teachers in high school and a narcissistic sugar daddy as the audience becomes the audience within the audience; I felt I was part of an awkward Björk video for the entire show, wondering why I was there for in the first place.
