Star Trek Live! Mudd’s Women Drag Show Entertains and Enlightens San Francisco Audiences This Month October 15, 2015by Mark Farinas , Filed under: Fan Productions,Humor,Review,TOS , comments closed
Dressing in drag is old hat in the theater world. Back in the olden days when women were not allowed to be professional actors it was a utilitarian device. In modern times it’s often used for comedic effect. For me, however, drag is best when it doesn’t just entertain, but makes us reexamine the traditional roles of men and women. A new Star Trek drag show, now playing this month at the Oasis Bar in San Francisco, does just that.

A few weeks ago the Balboa theater in San Francisco hosted a screening of New Voyages’s episode Mind Sifter. With a number of their cast and crew in attendance for both a pre-screening meet and greet and a Q&A session with director Mark Edward Lewis, SFX Supervisor Pony Horton, and actors Jeff Bond (Dr. Leonard McCoy) and Becky Wood (Dr. Hamlin).
