Cherry Pop Page #2

Synopsis: Cherry Pop! is a crazy night in the life of a small local bar's drag show. It's about a newcomer struggling with being the outcast on his first night. And a legend coming to terms with life after her last night in drag. And it's about a bunch of other back-stabbing queens with their own problems who just plain can't stand each other. Even the stories of some of the patrons play a part in the chaos. Cherry Pop is a real-time roller coaster ride where you better be strapped up, tucked in, and ready to go!

Hon, this is where dreams go

after they're dead

and gone and buried,

six months rotting,

here we are.

You found yourself

at the same place.


I swear to God, Zaza,

if you don't come out,

I will get them to tow your car.

I will do it.

Not my reserve spot.

I'll f***ing do it.

You wouldn't dare.

You just,

you just gonna sit here?

Did you want

me to sit there?

Being raised on a farm

had earned Kitten

a rare degree of patience,

a trait extremely useful

for a hostess at Cherry Pop .

She'd left home

at the mature age of 15

and followed her dream

to move to the big city.

A couple of years

and street corners later,

she eventually ended up here.

But you could

still see that twinkle

of a little farm boy's dream

shining bright in her eyes.

My God,

Zaza, I'm serious.

The show starts

in like, two minutes.

I don't care.

Tell them I'm dead.

Wish I could.

All right, look.

You're on suicide watch tonight.

No, honey, that was last week.

But thank you for being aware.

What are you talking about?

The TV show, Suicide Watch .

That was last week's

episode that I was on.

No baby, no.

No, no, no.




to stay outside this door

and make sure Zaza

doesn't kill herself.

You know, c...

Thank you.

I'm just gonna see....


what is wrong with my clothes?


You're the cherry?


Okay, whatever.

Listen, you go on

towards the end of the show.

-Okay, great.

-Just before Zaza, got it?

-Yes. 'Cause I was...

-All right, good.

That's good.

I was trying to tell, Michael,

that I'm supposed to sing live.

Sing live?

Yeah, that's my act.

I sing live.

Honey, we're all singers.

Bam, I have three albums.

You don't see me complaining.

So just go out there

and you're gonna

do what you're told.


-Okay but...

-No, no.

-No, but...

Bop, sh.

Good girl.



Ariela, it's your mom, girl.

-I'm sorry, your mom's here.

-Yeah, yeah, yeah, I - - I.

-Your mom's here.

-I get, I...

Your momsy

came to see you today?

I just, I don't know.

-You want the...?

-No keep them.

They're good actually.

This is what, I was really

into, scat for a while.

Not jazz,

just I was into... scat.


Like scooba-dubba-dop-dop-doop?

You're new in town.

You're new.

I'm gonna tell you about scat.


Okay, okay.

Okay. Okay. Okay.

So, if you're free later.

Honey, hey pumpkin.

Hey, Mom.

What are you doing here?

I, I'm here to watch the play.

God, okay.

Makeup's a little heavy.

Is it one of those Asian plays?

I've told you a thousand times,

mom, that we're drag queens.

You're playing a queen?

How Shakespearean.

Ariela's mom always

dreamt of having a daughter
