You Can Never Go Down The Drain
John Jarboe as Mx. Rogers in a musical healing ritual for adults: You Can Never Go Down The Drain. Mr. Rogers always said: no matter how bad things are, "You can never go down the drain."   Using and abusing iconic songs from the program, Philadelphia's Bearded Ladies Cabaret puts this idea to the test. In this performance, expect a goldfish funeral, gay romps into the land of make-believe, and some earnest questions about irony.
