When your catchphrase turns into your signature show, you know you've done something right. The staple of Sunday night nightlife, Slurp is fast-paced romp of a drag show hosted by the thirstiest blonde in the land, Paige Turner. She's a Showbiz Spitfire for a reason. Filling the set list with theater tuners, Disney classic, and gay anthems, this show is truly for everyone. Paige kicked off the show with "Raise the Roof" from The Wild Party" and quickly followed it up with her toasting number, "C'mon Get Slurpy." After a couple of more numbers, Paige got into game mode. It was time for Name That Tune. Paige invited a pair of Brazilian slurps to partake in the game. Soon we confirmed that Spanish and Portuguese are not the same language. The rules of the game are simple. Guess the song title wrong and you have to remove an article of clothing. The game is over when Paige is satisfied with the lack of clothing being worn or the game goes off the rails. Let's just say it may have been the latter on this evening.
After ending the night with a rousing lip sync to "Once Upon a Time" from one of the most underrated clunkers on Broadway, Brooklyn, it's safe to say Slurp is one of the best weekly shows there is.
