All The Kings Men (ATKM) is the nationally award winning, comedic, gender-bending performance troupe from Boston; entertaining your face off since April 2002! Performing to standing ovations and sold out houses from Los Angeles to London, this unique troupe is three parts Tracey Ullman, a punch of Carol Burnett, and a pint of Jim Carrey playing between 20-50 gender blurring characters per performance. ATKM hold a mocking mirror to the construction of identity through destabilizing the popular perception of gender boundaries; they strike at the heart of gender issues with performances as poignant as they are audacious. All The Kings Men weave together unique and moving experiences that  educate, engage, and entertain.

In their 11 year history ATKM has been honored to perform on a collection of legendary stages, most notably The Stella Adler Theater in Los Angeles, NYC’s historic Stonewall and The New Players Theater in London. Many institutes of higher learning have invited them to share their ever-changing show, host workshops and talk backs including Yale University, UConn, Smith College and MIT. College and University shows are very important to the troupe. They’ve performed at Pride events everywhere; their hometown Boston, Rhode Island and the largest pride celebration in North America, Toronto.

In their first year they won the Boston Phoenix’s “Best Kept Secret” award. Just 2 years later they were named one of ten nationwide winners of Curve Magazine’s “Best Lesbian Theater” award alongside being featured in their magazine. Since then they have been nominated for a host of other awards and recognitions nationwide including “Best Burlesque Troupe”, “Best Comedy Troupe”, “Best Theatre Company” and “Best Dance Troupe”. In June of 2011, All The Kings Men were newly honored as six of GO Magazine’s 100 Women We Love and most recently named winner of a GO Magazine 2012 Nightlife Award.

This troupe clearly loves what they do and see no end in sight. They wish to bring their show to YOU, where ever you are- so get in touch! All The Kings Men is currently available for a wide variety of booking engagements including performances, workshops and Q & A’s for; festival, parade, private viewings, theatrical runs, cruises, college and university and other special events.
