With a deadly combination of classic favourites, fresh outlooks and an envious selection of wigs, All Dolled Up Restitched is the very best of Panti.
Following the success of electropop musical sensation Alice in Funderland at the Abbey Theatre in 2012, not to mention the sweaty performance-art-club riot that is WERK, THISISPOPBABY burst back through the doors of the Abbey Theatre with long-term collaborator, muse and drag deity: performance superstar Panti.
She’s had a four-year hiatus from the theatre, but this summer Panti’s back treading the boards with her trademark wit and trannie-tastic yarns to reveal the stories behind the make-up and expound upon the self-made, man-made, woman she is today. With the prevailing theme of ‘to thine own self be true, and f**k the consequences’, the show is a candid and raucous look at a life lived in drag. Charting an epic journey from small-town Mayo to the bright lights of the Tokyo club scene to reigning supreme as the High Queen of Ireland, All Dolled Up Restitched is a master class in storytelling. Ferociously funny, deeply insightful and deliciously uplifting, the show incites its audience to live life to the full.
From 2007 – 2009, THISISPOPBABY and Panti created three sold-out smash-hit shows – In These Shoes?, All Dolled Up and A Woman In Progress – and now the conniving collaborators reunite to present Ireland’s First Lady of Drag in her national theatre debut.
‘Your first encounter with the phenomenal drag queen Panti is a little like suddenly discovering a new planet in the solar system.’ The Irish Times
