“See it and surrender yourself to the fabulousness.” – Barry Waters, SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER
VEGAS IN SPACE: Would you change your sex to save the entire universe? The fabulous Captain Tracy Daniels would! Disguised as show girls from Earth, Daniels and her fierce space crew travel to the “babes-only world” of VEGAS IN SPACE. Once there, they must Dance! Dance! Dance! to save the universe! This movie has more wigs than Wigstock, more make up than a Miss America pageant, and all the fabulousness of THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT. With tongue planted firmly in cheek and outfits that would make RuPaul jealous, these cross-dressing divas are more fabulous than Julie Newmar, and shine brighter than a supernova. One of the first truly queer midnight movies, VEGAS IN SPACE is a campy, psychedelic, and loving homage to 1950s and ‘60s B-movie sci-fi with an all-drag cast!
