About A Faerie Tale of New York

One night (or is it many) at a failing drag club in NYC. Drag queens of multiple generations bitch, fight, get drunk, cry, snort coke, perform the house down, and reflect on the state of queer community, performance, and the economics of nightlife. Also Queen Mab is there. Yeah, that Queen Mab.
