Description

Len Blanco's the modern man of your dreams: Woke. Feminist. Vegan (Monday to Thursday). He just wants to talk to you. For God’s sake, let him talk to you. In his musical comedy cabaret, this recovering boy band member and drag king amongst men will be exclusively revealing just how far he’s come since the 90s (spoiler: not very far). Blanco’s larger-than-life debut solo show will deliver live vocals, live lip-sync, and live choreo. VAULT Festival After Dark nominee, Man Up finalist, as seen on BBC One's All Together Now. 'Joyous and completely original drag' (WithinHerWords.co.uk).
