Plot SummaryEdit

A prologue introduces the audience to two vaudeville performers, Queenie, a showgirl and Burrs, a clown. Tired of Burrs and his physically brutal ways, Queenie makes plans to throw a party. Their guest list is a motley mix that includes Kate, a semi-reformed prostitute who is Queenie's best friend and biggest rival; her latest lover, Mr. Black; a prizefighter named Eddie and his wife Mae; the flamboyant and incestuous d'Armano brothers; Sam Himmelsteen, a theater producer; Dolores, a hooker and her lesbian madam, Madeleine True, and a mute dancer, Jackie. Queenie sees Mr. Black, who is immediately attracted to her, as her opportunity to make Burrs jealous. At the same time, Kate is determined to nab Burrs.

The party soon evolves into an orgy. Burrs, finding Queenie with Black, pulls out his gun. He and Black struggle for it and Burrs is killed, leaving Queenie to wonder how her plan could end in such tragedy. (from Wikipedia)
