All The Kings Men drag troupe at University of Hartford – By Susan Dunne

We first spot Maria Kogan in the movie “Play in the Gray” wearing a platinum-blond mullet wig, prancing around the streets of Provincetown, Mass., playing a toy saxophone. Someone observing her might think she is a man, a very silly man.
