Award Winning Drag Performance Troupe Hits the Road

In their first big journey outside of the Northeast, All The Kings Men, a drag based performance troupe hailing from Boston, MA hits the road for 4 big shows later this month.

All The Kings Men (ATKM to fans), established in 2002, is an award winning, all female, physical theatre ensemble that has been performing original, cabaret style shows for the past 6 years throughout Boston and New England. First up for the groundbreaking troupe: The National Women's Music Festival in Madison, WI on Saturday, June 21 at 10:30 pm. ATKM will be appearing alongside performers such as Ellis, Mimi Gonzales, Cris Williamson and many more. The festival runs from Friday, June 20 through Sunday, June 22 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

One week later, the troupe will appear in Toronto, Canada for the Pride Festivities there. They will be performing Friday night, June 27th at Goodhandy's (www.goodhandys.com) as part of the special event show "Degenderit Pride". Saturday, June 28th, the troupe will do a full 50-minute set at 4 pm on the Pride Festival's NOW stage (www.pridetoronto.com), and at 8 pm that same day ATKM will make an appearance on the South Stage as part of the "Insert Pronoun Here" line-up (including Drag King Dred and Toronto's own Drag King Flare). Sunday, the troupe will venture back east, with a stop Sunday, June 29th in Ithaca, NY to perform a full show at The Common Ground at 8pm ( www.ithacacommonground.com).

ATKM pushes the boundaries and explores stereotypes of gender identity through comedic and dramatic story telling, set to music. Their years of steady performance and large fan base has helped them to become New England's premiere drag king troupe. All The Kings Men was the 2004 winner of the Boston Phoenix's Reader's Choice "Best Kept Secret" Award, and Curve Magazine's choice as one of the ten nationwide winners of the "2006 Best Lesbian Theatre Award". With their fans supporting them, ATKM is set to expand their audience across the country by launching mini-tours to different cities this summer and fall. They have international aspirations in mind as well for the years to come.
