Even with a face that “looks like the collision of a Maybelline truck and a Shoney’s buffet,” Dina Martina’s makeup might be the most restrained aspect of this outrageously daffy entertainer. Lauded as “the most original drag queen working in America today” by The Village Voice, Dina’s performances celebrate drag even as they transcend it completely, becoming (in the words of John Waters) “some new kind of twisted art.” Now, after a nine-year absence, she returns to Philadelphia with the premiere of Dina Martina in Philly: Flat & Lacking. Once again, Dina offers a delightful blend of unequalled song, unnecessary dance, unattractive costumes, and unbelievable video during a night of entertainment that assaults the senses like no other show. Be there to realize how awesome “awful” can really be when Dina Martina takes over Voyeur Nightclub.
