Handbag’s Current Season

  • The gold standard of camp in ChicagoThe Chicago Reader, 2008
  • Why do we love Hell in a Handbag? Because propriety has no place even walking past the stage door of one of their shows. Because deep down, we all long to be naughty. Because they are masters in the fine art of camp and that is the kind of anti-culture that soothes the wicked soul.Gay Chicago Magazine, 2008
  • Is there anyone serving it (Camp) up, or serving it better, than Hell in a Handbag artistic director David Cerda? The brilliant Cerda appears to be Chicago’s answer to New York’s Charles Busch, a comic performer of the likes of the great cross-dressing performers Everett Quinton and Miss Coco Peru, to name a few.New City, 2010
