Actor and singer TIM DRAXL returns to the cabaret stage with an exciting project that re-creates the 1960s cult album of male-to-male love songs Love Is A Drag. The melodic, haunting work comprises American standards previously recorded only by women yet here interpreted by a male crooner whose identity was deliberately shrouded in secrecy. Adorning the album’s cover are the words: For Adult Listeners Only and Sultry Stylings By A Most Unusual Vocalist. Songs include My Man, The Man I Love, He’s Funny That Way, Bewitched and Mad About The Boy.

Love is a Drag is a vibrant, truthful and intimate exploration which reveals the repression, hostility, deceits and life-and-death sacrifices of the ‘40s. ‘50s and ’60s as well as a celebration of Tim Draxl’s own personal story of artistic freedom, individual and collective pride, and how 50 years ago the very notion of Marriage Equality would have been dismissed as pure fantasy.

The 90-minute production is about the shackles of tradition and the instinct, humanity and will-power of men to be true to themselves in resourceful, cunning and high-risk ways in an era when exposure of being gay brought infamy, persecution and punishment. Ultimately, Love Is A Drug is deeply-romantic, life-affirming and liberating, as achingly conveyed in Billie Holliday’s The Man I Love.
