They sing, they dance, and they know the names of all the tools—like the pokey one and the brushy thing. Join Eric Jaffe and Lili St. Queer on their first ever musical Museum tour and you'll see historical objects in a brand new (very gay) light. But follow closely behind their highly educated high heels—there may be other queens lurking in the exhibits! Get ready to laugh, cry, and learn facts you should probably verify later.

Your hosts will guide you on an after-hours, interactive, walking tour of the galleries where local performers will delight with live musical theater and dance. Please note that you will be actively moving through the galleries with the performers for the full duration of the performance.

Catch a glimpse of a gown worn by Eric in their musical parody Thweeney Todd: The Flaming Barber of Fleek Street currently on display in The Stories We Wear special exhibition!

Performances begin at 6 pm and 8 pm. Choose from General Admission and VIP tickets. VIP ticket holders will be a featured part of the show and receive a signed poster, goodie bag, and free admission to an upcoming Ancient Alcohol tour.

Some content of this original musical is mature in nature.
