Drag Kings & Queens Bend Space in 'Star Trek Live'

Gareth Gooch
Amber Sommerfield, Leigh Crow, and Honey Mahogany in Star Trek Live


Out in the Bay ventures into outer space 7pm Thursday with cast members of Star Trek Live, a comedic gender-bending homage to the hit '60s TV show, now on stage at Oasis Night Club in San Francisco. Eric Jansen's guests are Honey Mahogany, who plays communications officer Uhura, and Laurie Bushman, who plays intergalactic con man Harry Mudd and co-directs the show.  You’ll also hear Leigh Crow boldly playing Captain Kirk and Emily France channeling Scotty as no drag kings ever have before, and other audio clips, music and background sounds that make the Starship Enterprise come alive on Star Trek Live.  (Honey tells us, among other things, how Martin Luther King, Jr., helped keep the groundbreaking Uhura on the air five decades ago.) Join us on the bridge to enjoy this preview, then go see this fun show at Oasis!
