Doot, doo-doot, doo-doot, doot-doo-doo (repeat)…
This song about a bunch of transvestite friends of Andy Warhol is an outsider’s anthem. Interestingly, of the 11 versions, only two included on-stage cross-dressing performances. But we did have the amazing COLOUR GIRLS on hand to spice up the evening. THE SHOW INCLUDED TWO CHOIRS, who together contributed the talents of 56 singers. This was a bit complicated, as the right third of the stage was blocked off because it was deemed the WILD SIDE (where the drum kit resided, which went completely unused the entire evening).
