Blissful Survivor

Blissful Survivor

BY DAVID NOH | There are damn few singers today as purely exciting as Bettye LaVette, who has a new CD out, “Worthy,” and is about to wow the Upper East Side at the Café Carlyle, January 27 to February 7. Her sinuous, searingly involved huge talent aside, I became particularly enthralled with her after reading her […]

High Stakes

High Stakes

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | To hear him tell it, the title of Ben Rimalower’s one-person show “Bad With Money” is an understatement. His money addiction has led him into all sorts of dark and felonious places –– but rather than being behind bars, he’s on stage at the Duplex confessing, after a fashion. Appropriate to […]

Sweet 16

Sweet 16

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | The 16th annual GLAM Awards warmed up an otherwise bitter cold winter evening on January 13. Bianca Del Rio and Michael Musto hosted the raunchy nigh at BPM, presented by Cherry Jubilee, that celebrated the best in New York City nightlife. The evening’s event, which kicked off with an elaborate “Wizard […]

Party with Pa and Ma Ubu

Party with Pa and Ma Ubu

BY SCOTT STIFFLER | Finding an ample supply of flesh on display at the Slipper Room is a given — but whether it’s shocking or sexy is purely in the eye, and quite often the groin, of the beholder. That’s what makes the decadent burlesque venue such a good match for the brief run of […]

Endora’s Year-End Encomiums

Endora’s Year-End Encomiums

BY DAVID NOH | Every year, we give out the Agnes Moorehead Awards for outstanding live and film performance, realizing full well that despite her mammoth body of excellent work, she is probably best known as Endora on TV “Bewitched.” So, it’s appropriate to introduce this year’s Aggies with memories from two of her co-stars […]

An Impressive Symphonic Band of Our Own

An Impressive Symphonic Band of Our Own

BY DAVID NOH | It’s hard to believe, but the Lesbian & Gay Big Apple Corps turns 35 this year and the LGBAC Symphonic Band performs its holiday concert, “Make the Yuletide Gay!”, on December 12 at Symphony Space (2537 Broadway at 95th St., 8 p.m.; lgbac.org). I grabbed the chance to talk to its new […]

Putting On A Show… and Then Another and Another

Putting On A Show… and Then Another and Another

BY CHRISTOPHER MURRAY | Oh, I’ll go to three shows a day most weekends,” noted the downtown performance maven Nicky Paraiso as we walked along the Bowery a few nights before Thanksgiving. We’d just been to see sexy naked Hungarian dancers writhe about the stage for an hour while sweating copiously at the Abron Arts Center. […]

A Teddy Bear of a Ruby

A Teddy Bear of a Ruby

BY CHRISTOPHER MURRAY | Two shows this December will mark the 25th — and final —year in which drag artist Ruby Rims presents his benefit holiday cabaret variety show “TeddyCare” at Judson Memorial Church in the Village. Ruby acts as master of ceremonies for the two-evening showcase that will feature a dozen or so performers, […]

Musical Theater Drill Down  

Musical Theater Drill Down  

BY CHRISTOPHER MURRAY | So, do you watch these Broadway-themed hit reality shows? “Lifestyles of the Bitchiest on Broadway,” “Celebrity Accompanist,” “The Voice Coach,” “Keeping Up with the KarSmashians,” “America’s Got High C’s,” “The Real Understudies of Broadway,” “Don’t Tell Mama in Hell’s Kitchen,” “The Biggest Loser Who Was Robbed of That Tony Award,” “So […]

The Lyp Returns, Imelda’s Enduring Fascination

The Lyp Returns, Imelda’s Enduring Fascination

BY DAVID NOH | It’s incredible, but Lypsinka, that whirling dervish of illusion and the highest imaginable camp — whom I consider as essential a New York figure as the Statue of Liberty — hasn’t been on a local stage in nine years. This has been happily remedied with “Lypsinka! The Trilogy,” running through January […]
