The Cockettes

2002 Rated R 1hr 40m

David Weissman and Bill Weber's documentary traces the ascent and subsequent descent of the Cockettes, an equal-opportunity troupe composed of women, men and children who performed in drag at San Francisco's Palace Theater in the late '60s and '70s. Known as much for their flamboyance as for their talent, the Cockettes and their high-flying act failed to soar in the pressure tank of New York's theater scene.
