A real drag queen, Linda Simpson has a show at LaMaMa called The Bad Hostess, which is a delectable romp about the roles that religion and family play in one's holiday psyche. Breaking up the occasional serious talk, Flloyd plays a cross-dresser who announces things like, "I wouldn't trade my artistic integrity for all the kabbalah water in Malawi!"

- Michael Musto, The Village Voice

Just in time for the holidays, performer and writer Linda Simpson (“The thinking woman’s drag queen,” according to Paper Magazine) returns to the stage with a dark comedy set on Christmas Eve.  As a blizzard rages outside, a drag diva’s party deteriorates into a night of bitter family memories, despicable karaoke, and rants against God and religion.  Ah, the joys of Christmas!
Co-starring Justin Christopher, Flloyd, Erin Markey and Chris Tanner.  Directed by burlesque sensation Julie Atlas Muz
