Cocoa Fondue is a drag queen who was once described as the lead ingenue at the S.A.S.S. academy. But every queen bee has an enemy. For Cocoa it is Catastrawberry, a flame-haired glittery villain who is intent on ruining Cocoa’s shot at stardom.

Directed by Andrew Arnold and co-written by Will Robelo, the script is witty and fast-paced and hilarious. The characters are wonderful down to the supporting roles. One of the best lines has Mulan Rouge in a state of panic stating, “I’m not mad at you, I’m mad at the nail polish.”

'The Cocoa Fondue Show' Review: Colorful and fantastic magic on the stage

Caldwell Tidicue plays Cocoa Fondue and gives a strong and entertaining performance. Joshua Allen Eads plays Catastrawberry. Eads and Tidicue share a strong chemistry that puts their performances over the top. This also adds to the entertainment value of The Cocoa Fondue Show. The big musical act is fun and action packed as the two rivals come together.

The Cocoa Fondue Show is extremely entertaining and hilarious. There is too much going on today’s hectic world. Forget about life for a minute and enjoy the vibrant characters and slapstick comedy of  The Cocoa Fondue Show.
