Dim all the lights, sweet darling, because the silliest/scariest disco musical you’re likely to ever see is back in town. I Totally Know What You Did Last Donna Summer, a parody of ’80s slasher films and ’90s horror films set to a hit parade of tunes from the late beloved disco queen of the ’70s, returns to chill and thrill Los Angeles audiences looking for innovative Halloween entertainment.
Dane Whitlock conceived of the production fresh on the heels of pair of recent parody musicals that had audiences in stitches, Are You There God? It’s Me, Karen Carpenter and Little House on the Prairie-oke.
“I decided to delve into the slasher genre since campy horror movies strike such a chord in our community,” Whitlock told Queerty. “Combining this with music from Donna Summer seemed a perfect fit. I mean, have you heard her music? Some of it is really spooky.”
The show played for four sold-out weeks last spring at L.A. Cavern Club Theatre, which has become the city’s premiere host for all sorts of delightfully demented productions, and will begin a limited engagement October 10.
What can audiences expect? “A fast paced, high energy, hour and fifteen minutes of blood soaked fun,” Whitlock has promised.
Check out the show’s trailer below.
So, its okay for the gay community to embrace Donna Summer now that she’s dead? There seems to be a trend with Black Artists and White Acceptance (aka Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston etc), Black Artists have to die to really cross over
@MarionPaige: Your comment doesn’t make any sense. You think the Queen of Disco, the King of Pop, and The Voice had to die to get “White acceptance”? People celebrate talent as soon as it become evident, they don’t wait. True talent transcend race, creed, nationality, and sexual orientation.
@MarionPaige: I don’t know why you’re trying to conflate “the gay community” with white people, but if you were alive in the ’70’s then you’d know that there was no place in the world where Donna Summer was more celebrated than the gay community.
