...And Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens

Candy Delaney, March 2018

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Ricky Graham

AND TELL SAD STORIES OF THE DEATH OF QUEENS showcases barely contained desires and passions that erupt during a fateful Mardi Gras holiday. Candy, a successful drag queen, picks up a rough sailor and spoils him with money and attention. When he leaves suddenly, it’s up to the two queens who live upstairs to offer consolation.

"Ricky Graham’s direction is flawless... As Candy, the ever-engaging Spigelman’s subtlety, honesty and investment are brilliant. With his exceptional work in recent productions of “Caligula” and “Faustus,” Spigelman proves himself to be a most valued contributor to the New Orleans theater community." -Bruce Burgun, The New Orleans Advocate

"One of the best thing Ricky Graham has ever directed... absolutely transfixing... Spigelman gives one of the best performances of his life."  -Alan Smason, "Steppin Out", WYES

"Ricky Graham's production is a moment in amber... Spigelman plays it at that near-operatic level to strong effect."  -Theodore P. Mahne, NOLA.COM
