The Lady in Question

Address the Hero in You

Playwright Charles Busch described the conception of The Lady in Question as, “A dress.” The Lady in Question parodies patriotic 1940 thriller films, as it follows the glamorous and talented world-class pianist Gertrude Garnet. While traveling through Germany, Garnet meets a striking American professor who entangles her in his mission to retrieve his mother from German Nazis. Renowned actor Kenneth Ansloan—creator of Albuquerque's incredibly accomplished drag troupe, The Dolls—portrays Gertrude Garnet while Hal Simons (Deathtrap, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum) directs the drama comedy at the Vortex Theatre. The opening weekend has already passed, but you can catch the play for just $22 every weekend until the final showing on March 5; Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30pm and Sunday shows begin at 2pm.
