Performance legend Leigh Bowery hosts an irreverent musical devoted to of one of our most enigmatic and polarizing pop stars, Lady Gaga. Featuring a collection of the art world's greatest icons, this "dance floor dialectic" celebrates the place where high culture hooks up with low art. Brought to you by queer trailblazers Ecce Homo (Alistair Newton and Matt Jackson).

Of a Monstrous Child was developed through the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre residency program. A workshop presentation was presented as a part of the 2011 Rhubarb Festival funded by a project grant from the Toronto Arts Council.
