We Loved The Film

April 2nd, 2011 No comments

We all loved the film!  We didn’t have computers with us, and our rooms at Big Ruby’s didn’t have a DVD player, so we were not able to look at it until we returned to Memphis.

We were able to see several shows at 801, so that made seeing the film even better.  It was fun, very interesting, and parts of it were terribly sweet – particularly the scenes with the mothers.  Sushi is our favorite – talented, bright, insightful, and quite funny.  We spent so much time at the shows that Sushi noticed and convinced me to have my picture made – she can be terribly kind to us old lesbians!  Thought you’d think it was cute, so I am attaching it.

Fun at the 801

Thanks so much for helping us make our friend’s 75th birthday so much fun!  Also, we are ready for Audience with the Queens, Part 2, and for our next visit to Key West!

Another Great Film Review

Hi Robbie…

the famous Drag Queen - Sheila Wolf

nice to see you in the outtakes of the movie.  i wanna see you next in drag tooo *lol*…
honey i love this fucking perfect view on our business. I don’t have to earn my money with my drag thing but if i have to.. i would go to key west and perform in Sushi’s bar…
a great entertainment, a senseful look and a funny way to show what we do.

I saw many drag films.. be part of some TV documentaries and playing a few music videos in the last seven years .. but the main thing i love in drag is to meet people like YOU and SUSHI.
That’s the reason why i do drag and burlesque.. and thats the reason why i would rate your film as gorgeous as i can. The world need films like that… !!

Two years ago a movie called Queen Raquela wins the Queer film festival in Berlin.
i am goin’ to the queer film festival in Berlin on this friday… and maybe you can send this movie to the jury next year. That could be a perfect situation to meet us here 🙂 …

i will let you know when the review is online… !!
can i publish some stills of this film?

Audience With The Queens really humanizes a very interesting group of outrageous characters. It left me wanting more.”

Hello Robbie,

I loved the film...

I am so very happy to write to you, and to above all thank you, for a job Well Done with “Audience with the Queens”.

I was thrilled with the film!  You see I am already an avid fan of the 801 Girls… walking a thin line between #1 Fan and Stalker according to Gassy.  LOL

I have tried to spend time with them off stage, but they are very popular and busy as you know.  I love them all and it was just wonderful to see that you took the time to give everyone a glimpse into their lives as “people” not just drag queens.  And they are simply WONDERFUL!

Sushi is simply fabulous on stage but your film showed the side of her that most people have no clue about… the relatively quiet one who cares so deeply for others and adores her mother.  The one who will take friends “under her wing” and who works so hard to bring us all such wonderful entertainment and laughter.
And Sam!  I just love her!  Sam is completely genuine inside and out.  What you see is what you get.  She is a joy and her nervousness in the film showed us just how real she is.

Gugi, my Latina Loca and RV, Gassy and all the rest… are just wonderful people in an ugly world trying their best to make it beautiful, if only just for a little while at a time.

I was sad when it ended.  I felt like I was in a room with them and wanted it to go on and on.  I applaud your work!  Kudos!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Much love,

Marie Brilz

A very happy Viewer...Thanks !

Audience with the Queens, the film about the Drag Queens of Key West was one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It was real, raw and took the viewers to a place where real life happens. I absolutely loved it! It made me want more, I now wanted to become a part of their journey. Hopefully there will be more from this amazing director Robbie Hopcraft. It was an amazing blend of emotions throughout and it shows just absolute true talent!
