Movie Summary
Come to the land of a thousand Lizas (and Barbaras, Judys, and Marilyn Monroes) in this gay and colorful documentary that chronicles the great spectacle of New Yorks annual festival of drag queens. The event has been taking place every Labor day in Manhattan for thirty years. Over 20,000 people regularly attend. As the name implies, Wigstock features thousands of carefully coiffed wigs designed to resemble the hair of drag queen faves. Also included are many gorgeous costumes, and of course, performances. The camera also takes the viewer backstage to watch while performers rehearse their campy acts. Featured entertainers include Alexis Arquette, Jackie Beat, RuPaul, Mistress Formika and Lypsinka. Musical entertainment is provided by the group Deeelite, and Crystal Waters. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
