The camp classic features an all-star drag cast — Coco Peru, Ginger Minj, Poppy Fields, Chi Chi DeVayne and Eureka O’Hara — as well as Traci Lords (Cry Baby, Blade), John Waters’ star Mink Stole (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray), Suzie Kennedy (Marilyn Monroe tribute artist), Tatiana Monteiro and adult film star Wesley Woods.

Women Behind Bars is presented by “Just Pow!” Productions and runs through February 2 at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood.
