In Quito a friend took me to one of the best drag performances I’ve ever attended. Daniel and Shirley’s comic timing is as sharp as Lucile Ball and Desi Arnez. In traditional Quito I saw them as cultural heroes, opening up artistic space for those outside the mainstream. At show’s end I enthused: “You should have your own TV show.” They laughed, “We don’t get mentioned on TV …or in the newspapers”. But the stars are invited to perform in Bogata, Buenos Aires, Santiago where they re held in high regard. This is a don’t miss underground Quito happening. The theaters location is Manuel Larrea y Riofrio. More info by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
