Charles Busch's camp classic is one of the longest-running plays in Off-Broadway history, "Vampire Lesbians of Sodom" tells the saga of two fatally seductive vampiresses whose paths first collide in ancient Sodom. Their bitter rivalry as bloodsuckers but more importantly, as actresses, endures for two thousand years with stops along the way in 1920's silent movie Hollywood and contemporary Las Vegas. The first half of the show features Charles Busch's "Sleeping Beauty or Coma," the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty set in the swinging mod London of the 1960's. Sebastian Loré, a flamboyant megalomaniacal fashion designer, "discovers" a young mod temp receptionist, Enid Wetwhistle, and tries to turn her into a high fashion model. She rebels and finds refuge with a wacky young fairy godmother of a struggling fashion designer, Fauna Alexander, and her photographer boyfriend, Ian. The three become huge stars in the new mod era, with Enid now transformed as "Rose," and proclaimed as "the face of the sixties." Sebastian plots his revenge on the trio and slips some bad LSD into Rose's drink. She lapses into a twenty-year coma. In the eighties, a handsome nutritionist named Craig Prince revives her and they all live happily ever after.
