VAMPIRE LESBIANS OF SODOM by Charles Busch

One of the longest running plays in Off-Broadway history, “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” tells the saga of two fatally seductive vampiresses whose paths first collide in ancient Sodom. Their bitter rivalry as bloodsuckers but more importantly, as actresses, endures for two thousand years with stops along the way in 1920’s silent movie Hollywood and contemporary Las Vegas.
