This flyer for the Cockettes’ Journey to the Center of Uranus, one of the troupe’s last performances before their disintegration. After flopping in a highly publicized run of shows in New York in late 1971, the Cockettes returned home and staged “Journey to the Center of Uranus” again, this time with film star Divine making a show-stopping appearance in the number “A Crab on Your Anus Means You’re Loved”, dressed as a lobster, recalling the crustacean love scene in John Waters’ Multiple Maniacs, released only two years earlier.
