Last November I saw a comedian whose name will be, if not already, on everybody's lips. That comedian was Joel Creasey! It was great to see a comedian breathe new life into a performance genre that can sometimes blend together between comics. If you missed Joel last year, now is your chance to see this hilarious, bright, comedy legend in the making when he returns to The Laurie Beechman Theatre with a new show playing August 4, 5, & 6th at 7pm!
I was so inspired by my 2014 interview with Karen Finley that I jumped at this new opportunity to speak with Karen about her new show Karen Finley: Unicorn Gratitude Mystery which plays The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC from July 31-August 21. In this show, Karen humorously explores America's obsession with the imagined, unattainable white-horned mythical creature. Karen & I dive deep into the creation of the show discussing gratitude, fear, life's mysteries, & improving her life by one percent better!
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!
