After a swift rise to fame with her Nobel nominated book ?Diary of a Drag Queen,' DENIM's Crystal Rasmussen is LIVE!, alive and unedited at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Bringing her pages to life through song, dance, and writhing around in a children's swimming pool, this is a tour de force show of a lifetime in which 108 year old Crystal reveals how to escape shame, escape the debt collector, and escape James Franco (who's been obsessed with her since 1996). Famed for her candid take on shame ? The Bible 2 takes it and twists, ducks, dives, splits and sings about what it's done to her, and what she's done to it. An unusual form ? part book reading, part sermon, part stand-up, part exploration of her God Given falsetto, this show is as chequered and breakneck as Crystal's past. In Crystal's world, the previously unspeakable becomes the commendable.
