Rupaul’s Drag Race’s most lovelable (only kidding…) contestant has left the catwalk for the more glamourous setting of a tiny trailer in the middle of snowy nowhere. Guillermo Názara tells us his vision about this uplifting story about a friendless Christmas party, to share with us the joy and wonder of the show’s holiday spirit.
The winterly bells are beginning to chime Announcing the start of the holiday time The streets get studded with fervour and light Immersing their guests in pure glee and delight All kinds have been welcome - the dull and the sage And also the weirdos who love things onstage There's opera and ballet, there's dance, gigs and plays And also big musicals - if your daddy pays The seasonal offer might be worth a try Not all that you go to can be Life of Pi There's all sorts of options, from shameful to brag And something in store too, if you are a f*g Cuz if you feel grinchy, girl, no need to go! You always could come see Miz Cracker's new show She's shady and catty, she's vile and obscene A match for c*nt lovers - if you know what I mean She's throwing a party for loved ones and friends But, hun, I don't think you'll enjoy how this ends For nobody's coming - she's there, all alone So she'll tell her story, sitting shag on her throne
It's a plot about passion, romance and good will And a small dose of murder - for the holiday thrill! It's all done in rhyme - hence this lovely review B*tch, you're not the sole bard - I can do this too! The writing is sassy, with spice, zest and sparks Don't like it? She'll say where to shove your remarks That's not me being jokey - watch out for this fact! Cuz strong chances are you'll be called to interact And as for the set, it's light but well-blent The way, I believe, that would suit this event I'm sure you will cheer for it's all in good fun But you may be surprised how soon this show is done! That may be the problem, regarding its pace It needs to last longer so as to hold the ace And there's one more wart to its w-hole, I'm afraid A bit more variety would serve as good aid She's not just an actress - she dances and sings Why not do this more so she can spread her wings? Some musical numbers all scattered around Are key for this piece to get high off the ground This lady can stand out - do let her perform! A full scale variety is, for drag queens, the norm Yet this won't prevent you from having a laugh You'll probably say: 'Hey, I just can't get enough' For it's still a nice evening, it holds a fair score You'll be pleased you have stepped your feet through her door... I don't think there's much more for me now to say Except that for this drag it's well worth the pay But before my goodbye, one last piece of advice For you will be grateful I've opened your eyes Buy only good tickets - for your sake and your view Or you will get scolded - that's a thing she will do I send you glad tidings, a kiss and a smile And wish you some coarse blast - if that is your style!
