Storyline

fusing two modern obsessions, drag and ABBA, and examines how they intersect.

Wholesome Family Fun
30 December 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

What's the Name of the Dame is a wonderful documentary/musical comedy with heartwarming and hilarious sequences based on the music of Abba. Even though there is great fun and humor, we get to know each of the main characters very well, as we are shown a window into the life of drag queens and performance artists. It might seem like this is a work that only a fringe audience would enjoy, but actually it is perfect for mainstream audiences in Middle America, who will love this wholesome but realistic view into an exotic and creative world that most never even can visit, much less gain this amount of insight in a short amount of time. This deserves an international theatrical release, and would be a perfect film for midnight showings on college campus, as well as regular showing on Showtime, Bravo, Logo and other such cable outlets. Jack Chen and his wonderful team have outdone themselves in this labor of love that is enchanting, educational and joyful.
