Award-winning drag tragicomedienne Pearle Harbour presents her cabaret spectacular Agit-Pop! – musical meditations for the pre-post-apocalypse. Developed over five years of live performance, Agit Pop! is an ever-changing collection of Pearle’s most hilarious and heart-wrenching short acts.
Weaving her signature acid wit and demented storytelling through the day’s headlines, Pearle takes on the world, from climate catastrophes to nuclear anxiety, the lust for housing, fake news, and real history.
Accompanied by musical director Steven Conway, Agit-Pop! reimagines the number-one hits of David Bowie, Judy Garland, Roy Orbison, Tom Waits, and more, in ways you've never heard before.
Please be advised this performance contains mature themes or subject matter and is intended for mature audiences.

“Combines the perfectionist aesthetic of a Stepford Wife, the optimism of a scout leader, and the dry rapport of a lounge singer.” - The Toronto Star
