Set in the Gilded Age of New York, Backstage is a comic romp through sex, drugs and murder. It appears every Thursday on ACT-I-VATE.
Backstage is a comic by artist and Dr. Sketchy's founder Molly Crabapple. The story follows the adventures of gossip-mongers / failed vaudevillians, Johnny Panama and Elizabeth Delancy, as they report on anarchist dance numbers, debauched uptown parties and cheap liquor for the yellow tabloid "Backstage".
