With ridiculous costumes, heartfelt lyrics, and DIY rock and roll theatricality, her latest edition is no exception.
The latest edition of her show is “Loving The Alien” and was written after the current US administration introduced the Muslim Travel Ban in 2017. It is a night of embracing, celebrating, and loving immigrants to counteract the vitriol, and in true
