The Cockettes

Director: David Weissman

Star: John Waters


A flamboyant ensemble of gender-bending hippies, The Cockettes created a series of LSD-fueled musicals in early 1970s San Francisco. When famed writer Truman Capote and film critic Rex Reed raved about a Cockettes show to their East Coast chums, it began a madcap saga of grand delusions that led to one of the most anticipated, and most disastrous, theatrical debuts in off-off Broadway history.

According to John Waters “it was complete sexual anarchy, which is always a beautiful thing!”
