The show’s cast includes Columbia College alums Dakota Hughes ’15, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BFA Program in Musical Theatre Performance, and Dominic Rescigno ’13, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting.

Inspired by the hit Netflix show Queer Eye, the musical parody follows everybody’s fave Fab Five as they help an Average Joe manifest their full potential through aggressive self-love, laugh-out-loud comedy, and more songs than you can handle, henny! Watch a live “episode” of the show we all thought we knew . . . until now. Queer Eye: The Musical Parody features all the avocados, plenty of pompadours, and maybe even a puppet or two. Say “YASS, and” to this hilarious experience where things just keep on getting better . . .and funnier!

The Second City, the nation’s premier comedy theatre and training center, is the Columbia College Theatre Department’s partner institution in the department’s groundbreaking BA Program in Comedy Writing and Performance.
