On Sunday I went to the matinee of Divine Sister, the hilarous new play written by and starring one of my performance heroes, Charles Busch. It's at the Soho Playhouse in NYC and you'd be really dopey to miss it. Charles is witty, vulgar, so amazingly skilled and subtle and then a total old ham all rolled into one. Here I am camping it up after the performance with him and his co-star, the amazing Julie Halston. You can buy tickets here. If you're not in NYC you might want to check out Charles' film Die, Mommie, Die!, his 60s Hollywood take on the Agamemnon story.
I also want to share my excitement about today being 1.11.11 and the date of my friend Lance Horne's album First Things Last. I sing Lance's song American on it, and I am joined by a range of others including Ricki Lake, Meow Meow and Cheyenne Jackson. You can buy it by clicking on the box on the right.
But also this Friday as part of the Lincoln center American Songbook we will all be singing songs from the album and more of Lance's songs at the Allen Room of the Lincoln Center. You can buy tickets here for the 8.30 show and here for the 10.30.
Then on January 30th we'll be doing the whole thing again in London at the Garrick Theatre. Buy tickets here.
Finally on Monday February 7th, I will be performing in Broadway Backwards, the annual fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS at which men sing women's songs and women men's from Broadway shows. I cannot reveal which song I will be singing except to say it is a song from a show I have been in, though I did not sing it. (and it's not Mein Herr). I will be joined by a bunch of loves including the brilliant Denis O'Hare and Clay Aiken. Buy tickets here
And on January 25th (Robert Burns night!!) I will be appearing on Live with Regis and Kelly
That's enough schilling
