Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Lady in Question Is Charles Busch should prove quite enticing for the legions of fans who have followed him throughout his career."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"The Lady in Question Is Charles Busch rarely stops genuflecting long enough to let its hair down."
‑ James C. Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"An absolute orgy of Busch memorabilia, which will satisfy devotees and pique the interest of the uninitiated."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Catania and Ignacio's film works best on the level of straightforward biography told through the reminiscences of friends, family, members of Busch's Lost-in-Limbo theatrical troupe and, best of all, Busch himself."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Affectionately observed, nimbly edited (and perhaps a mite overly reverent) documentary."
‑ Joe Brown, San Francisco Chronicle
"Busch's own personality, and the way the directors use the director/playwright's own dialogue and delivery to illustrate aspects of his life, give this documentary a resonance and playfulness missing in all too many bio pics."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"he's as entertaining out of drag as in it"
‑ Don Willmott,
"An affectionate tribute to the drag artist who has been a Manhattan institution for more than 20 years."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Invaluable as theater history."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"might be best enjoyed on TV at home."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
