The Confession of Lily Dare

Back before camp was a theme for fashion galas and fodder for Ryan Murphy miniseries, it was an underground language for (mostly) gay men. The playwright, performer, and bon vivant Charles Busch has been one of its foremost interpreters since 1984, when his show “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” became a downtown cult hit. He’s since made a career of bawdy parodies, often of old movies and their grandly suffering divas, typically played by Busch in drag. In confections such as “Die, Mommie, Die!” and “Psycho Beach Party,” he’s turned Hollywood kitsch into clawed comedy, and he’s not done. His latest is “The Confession of Lily Dare”体育投注网平台 (a Primary Stages production, in previews at the Cherry Lane), a sendup of weepy nineteen-thirties melodramas, starring Busch as a convent girl turned chanteuse turned queen of the brothels.
