Cockettes – Les Etoiles du Minuit Poster


About this product

A beautifully printed poster advertisement The Fabulous Cockettes in – Les Etoiles du Minuit – December 30, 1972 at the Palace Theatre, San Francisco. A psychedelic drag queen troupe founded by Hibiscus (George Harris), the Cockettes performed outrageous parodies of show tunes, and much else. Breaking many social, cultural, and sexual boundaries along the way, they inspired the glitter rock-era of David Bowie, Elton John, The New York Dolls, and filmmaker John Waters. “For our come-back spectacular an exquisite mirrored set opens the show, as the stage floor becomes the top of a vanity table where all the perfume bottles come to life. From the lavish garden of Louis XIV to Napoleon marching through a stark Russian winter, this show is an irreverent look at French history with a cast of dozens who appear as Marie Antoinette, Madame du Pompadour the Marquis de Sade and five warbling Edith Piafs.” Designed by John Flowers, lithograph printed in purple and gold on light rose-colored paper. Measures approximately 17.5″ x 11″.
