A Musical Comedy
San Antonio-artist and performer Jade Esteban Estrada brings “ICONS: The Lesbian and Gay History of the World, Vol. 1” to Corpus Christi for this year’s 2019 PRIDE celebration.
The 75-minute musical comedy is a presentation on the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people as told through the voices of Sappho, Michelangelo, Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein, Sylvia Rivera and Ellen DeGeneres. Jade Esteban Estrada has performed ICONS throughout the U.S. and worldwide from Scotland to Australia to South Africa. This one-night-only performance should not be missed.
“Entertaining and brash, ICONS: The Lesbian and Gay History Of The World, Vol.1 is an opulent time capsule reveal onstage. Wildly talented and energetic, Jade Esteban Estrada’s musical comedy is a cache of goods…a timeless celebration,” writes Maria Vasquez Boyd of ArtSpeak Radio KKFI 90.1 FM in Kansas City.
“ICONS” made its world debut at the Columbus National Gay and Lesbian Theatre Festival in Columbus, Ohio in September 2002. The Columbus Dispatch calls ICONS “compelling…Broadway-caliber.”
“Estrada knows how to draw an audience in and hold them in the palm of his hand,” writes Deborah Martin of The San Antonio Express-News.
“Without a doubt, the best entertainment dollars I spent this year went to “ICONS: The Lesbian and Gay History of the World, Vol. 1″ with Jade Esteban Estrada,” writes the Tampa Bay Gazette.
