From a tender age Scott Townsend’s life is ruled by his slippery gender. Growing up a girly-boy in the projects of Cambridge, MA, under the watch of Doris, his dysfunctional, single mom, Scott is prey to bullying and assault. Already a talented singer and performer, Scott grows up to be revered drag queen, Thirsty Burlington and delights club goers in Provincetown, MA with his spot on impersonation of Cher. But even in this gay mecca, being Thirsty comes at a price.
Inspired by events in Scott/Thirsty’s life, Thirsty is a true-life musical adventure as dramatic as it is entertaining.
