"Things You Shouldn't Say." If you love Donald Trump, you'll hate this show! This is the remarkable true story of four friends from San Francisco who had a life-changing Epiphany at a Bette Midler concert that led to them to form The Kinsey Sicks in an effort to find joy during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis. Now that the era of Trumpism is upon us, they're sharing their hilarious, inspiring and at times heartbreaking tale, and showing that hatred and deceit can be fought with humor and heart. So come join America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet as they lead us all in resisting these new dark times with laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair in an unforgettable new musical exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong vegetables and, of course, Bette Midler.

He has become an international star and is much in demand in Mexico, Canada, the U.S., and Europe. Paul's vocal range has been compared to the great crooners of the American songbook, and especially the high vocal range of Frankie Valli. It is no wonder that this artist chose to present the music of The Four Seasons for his show, including Dawn, Rag Doll, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, and Walk Like a Man. Paul handles the Frankie Valli songs as if Frankie Valli himself was on stage singing them in his early years on The Ed Sullivan Show!
