From Gay Essential
Released in 2016, Thirsty is a musical biopic of Scott Townsend, whose alter ego (drag queen Thirsty Burlington) has led him to become one of the planet’s leading Cher impersonators. The motion picture directed by Margo Pelletier stars Scott Townsend, Deirdre Lovejoy and Cole Canzano.
“With a kitsch spirit reminiscent of a John Waters film and musical numbers that recall everything from West Side Story and Hedwig and The Angry Inch to the retro charm of Grease and Little Shop Of Horrors, Thirsty is a biopic with energy to burn.”
— Eye For Film
“An uplifting experience, an inspirational, not to mention handsomely set-dressed, story of self-invention and survival.”
