From the Sacred...

I had the great pleasure of watching the final installment of the Queen Shmooquan "Say My Name" show at the Rendezvous Jewel Box theater. Queen Shmooquan is a character created by Jeppa Hall, who is part sex goddess, part retarded child. Queen 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. Even with a history of extreme weirdness, "Say My Name" raises the bar on entertaining perversion. Jeppa was featured earlier this year in the Seattle Weekly. Playing through this weekend ONLY at the Rendezvous.
