Queen Shmooquan

Not everyone among us has yet been exposed to Queen Shmooquan. If you're one of those unfortunate people, you must see her solo show at the Rendezvous Jewel Box Theater.

As played by Jeppa Hall, Queen Shmooquan is part sex goddess, part retarded child. In her performances at Moisture Festival, Drunk Puppet Nite, and at the Pink Door, Shmooquan is a kind of priestess of strange rituals in which the stuff of religion gets tangled up with the trappings of politics, as performed by a sexually precocious wild child. She’s beyond weird, but she still manages to be poetic, prophetic, absurd and never less than compelling. Her new show, “say my name,” is series of performance pieces, featured once a month at the Rendezvous' Jewel Box Theater. Every Wednesday, beginning November 7th @ 8:00pm ( a knife)
The Rendezvous' JEWEL BOX THEATRE, Belltown
$10, tickets at the door

The Queen is also featured at The Pink Door as part of “Burlesque Behind the Pink Door": Saturdays Nov. 10, Dec. 1 & Dec 15. Show starts 11pm.
