Monique Jenkinson & the Climate Theater Present
Faux Real with Fauxnique
Fresh from a smashing stint in London, Faux Real returns to the Climate Theater (in their temporary home at TJT – please note the venue change)!
For those of you who missed it before, here’s your chance: twelve shows!
For those of you who came and saw it last year, huge thanks for your wonderful support (and come back, because I’ve surprises planned for you).
And huge thanks to Climate Theater’s Jessica Heidt for her generous support.
I can’t wait to see all of you there.

Expect hero-worship, high heel stunts, gay prom dates, fierce lip-synchs and fact that in live theater, sometimes people get kicked in the face.
Faux Real in the press
‘equal to Justin Bond’s best endeavors…her revelatory and inspirational show Faux Real deploys Trannyshack-schooled drag, pro athlete caliber dance, and first-person dialogue to mine diamond truths about the relationship between women and gay men. It’s on a par with the 1990 film version of Sandra Bernhard’s Without You I’m Nothing…. If such references send your fagometer off the charts and you’ve missed Faux Real, for shame, child. But if they mean nothing to you, Jenkinson is must-see because of her technical excellence, ability to create beauty, and rare personable flair for drama.’ – Johnny Ray Huston, SF Bay Guardian (more)
