This year CRACK produced variety shows that made fun of the nether regions of outer space and the bucolic lawns of suburbia. Now, DC’s edgiest theater group is saddling up for a wild trip to the western heartland!

It’s time for another outrageous CRACK variety show. On Saturday, October 17, CRACK is hosting an old-fashioned country jamboree at Town that will be packed with live performances, short films, audience participation, and improvisation. As usual, the bawdy show is hosted by the naughty drag queen SUMMER CAMP and features farmhands KARL JONES and CHRIS FARRIS. DC theater-goers shouldn’t miss this special event that gives local performers–who have fallen through the cracks of traditional theater–a venue to showcase their hidden (and questionable) talents. The doors open at 9 PM and the show starts at 10 PM. And this time, audience members can get in on the action. General admission is $10, but audience members who wear anything country or western, receive a $2 discount. Folks are encouraged to wear cowboy hats, kerchiefs, boots, hoop skirts, bonnets, vests, or any other country outfit.

So far, the cattle call of performers includes POLLY DARTON and ANDREW GROSSMAN; GRANDMA BEDSWELL and her famous Country-time Juice; KARL “CURLY” JONES and THE BALTIMORE SQUARES; award winning TV personality from TruTV’s hit show “The Smoking Gun Presents” SCOTT NEVINS; the Baltimore drag sensation SUNRIZE HIGHWAY; as seen on NBC’s America’s Got Talent season 3, the DC COWBOYS; flamenco-dancing drag diva JOSUE CASTILLEJA; the sultry LADY LEXY; BRYAN EWSICHEK and DANNY CHAPMAN; the BURLESQUE COWPOKER; and more.
