Do not look for sacred cows in Do I Have To Do Everything My Fucking Self?, a subversive and completely original one-woman tour de force by Regina, the drag persona of Toronto musician Gentleman Reg. Part cabaret and part true confession, Do I Have To Do Everything My Fucking Self? is sass made flesh, a funny, unpredictable, no-holds-barred ride filled with electro pop, high kicks, and irreverent send-ups of anyone or anything that gets in her way.

Fronting the band Light Fires, Regina sings, dances, and recounts what it was like growing up queer (and not knowing it) in Guelph. With the voice of a shady angel and a body made for breaking hearts, Regina delivers anthems from the alleyways and sets the night ablaze. You already need her, and you haven’t even met her yet.

Contains coarse language.
