It has been five years since Charles Busch's The Divine Sister ran Off-Broadway. I saw that production at least 4-5 times. It was so funny, so well written, and 100% entertaining! Now, most of the original New York cast (Charles Busch, Julie Halston, Alison Fraser, Jennifer Van Dyck, and Jonathan Walker) is reviving the show at Bucks County Playhouse, with the addition of newcomer Erin Maguire. The Divine Sister plays at Bucks County Playhouse through August 13!
I was super excited to get the opportunity to interview another RuPaul's Drag Race favorite, Season Six's BenDeLaCreme whose new show, BenDeLaCreme's Inferno A-Go-Go will be making it's debut at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC from July 28-August 19. In this show, BenDeLaCreme seeks to answer that age old question: What the Hell? Turning her gay gaze toward Dante’s Inferno, this rollicking romp through nine circles of fire & fun is equal parts brimstone & rhinestones. After reading a bit about BenDeLaCreme's Inferno A-Go-Go, I couldn't wait to pick Ben's brain about the creation of this show, starring on RuPaul's Drag Race, and finding out about his own suffering as well as how he wants to improve his life by one percent better everyday!
Michael Raver is a rising playwright everyone should have their eye on! His new play, Fire on Babylon, which is in the Fresh Fruit Festival, is HOT! In fact, it's scalding with twists & turns that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole play. With only two performances left (July 15th & 17th), I suggest you get there before the lights go out forever on this run! Fire on Babylon plays at The Wild Project in NYC's East Village!
I'll never forget the day I was driving with one of my best friends and I asked him, "Who are we listening to?" My friend told me, it was his favorite singer/songwriter, Jon McLaughlin. It's such an honor to get to interview Jon. I loved talking to him about his music, his inspirations, fatherhood, touring, and how he hopes to improve his life by one percent better everyday! Jon's latest album, Like Us, is out now. I'm thrilled Jon's new tour, Don't Mess with my Tour, will be launching this fall!
An Evening Filled with Laughter, Smiles, and a Walk Down Memory Lane. Charles has a way of captivating the audience with his stories. Whenever he tells a story, it feels as though we are seated in his living room around his fire place. I also enjoyed Charles' varied set list. This show made me so happy and I can't wait for Charles' next engagement at Feinstein's/54 Below!
