GRANDE DAME

D'Arcy Drollinger is based in  San Francisco and is a actor, writer, musician, director & choreographer and fabulous drag queen, known for his high-camp / vaudeville-style stage productions that combine slapstick, farce and often drag. He was a founding member of the post-punk art band Enrique, and is an owner of the San Francisco nightclub Oasis, along with drag performer, Heklina. Drollinger is also creator of the dance-fitness brand, Sexitude, which is an ongoing body-positive, sex-positive dance/fitness program. If you've seen D'Arcy then you know she has legs up to her ya-ya, as anyone who's seen her original musical Shit and Champagne knows. She also has a keen business sense, as one of the four principals behind the year-and-a-half-old SoMa drag club Oasis, which has become a major player in S.F. nightlife in spite of a rather inauspicious start. D"Arcy claims to have started drag at the age of three...... and begged her mother to buy her a wedding dress and umbrella at a thrift store so she could be Marry Poppins. But on a more serious level, she has been doing drag since around 1993. D'Arcy's latest shtick was at the Victoria theater this season, pretty much back to back, as Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Show and Rose in The Golden Girls.

  2. She should take her drag show and do it right in front of Pence's DC house, and tease him to come out and join them.

    Seriously, though, there are some extremely talented people who perform Drag shows... It's been going on since the days of Greek Theatre, and the moniker DRAG came out of Shakespeare's plays more than 400 years ago. Dressed As A Girl: D.R.A.G. is how he annotated it for his troupe. Hugs!!!

  6. I adore D'Arcy. And her and Heklina are to be commended on promoting fresh talent, and lesser known acts.
