Character Actress Assoluta   

Character Actress Assoluta   

BY DAVID NOH | That absolute goddess of a character actress Julie Halston is having quite the year. After demolishing both audiences and admiring critics with the most hilarious cameo appearance ever in “You Can’t Take It with You,” she immediately went into “On the Town” for a short stint replacing Jackie Hoffman, and is now […]

Much to Bunny’s chagrin, her 78-year-old mom, Lady Becky, upstaged Bunny, wearing a classic Lady Bunny outfit and wig. The rest of the well-wishers read like […]

Paris. The One in Texas.

Paris. The One in Texas.

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | He sure has come a long way — Seth Sikes performed his third sold-out performance at 54 Below on Thursday, April 16, aptly titled “Seth Sikes is Still Singing Judy Garland.” Sikes kicked off the evening with a medley of “Lucky Day,” “I Got Rhythm,” and “Everybody Sing” before launching into a […]

And Now, Grindr: The Opera

BY ELI JACOBSON |  Some years ago, New York and Philadelphia-based actor, singer, playwright, and composer Erik Ransom came up with the idea of creating a cabaret theater piece about the gay sex hook-up site Manhunt.net. But the world of online gay dating evolved faster than the piece did. Soon gay men were ditching their […]

Footwork After 40

Footwork After 40

BY DAVID NOH | Dancers bring so much joy into our lives. But if I had a kid who wanted to do it for a career I don’t know how thrilled I’d be. The reality is a hard one and the professional tenure is short. Dancer Over 40, started in 1990, is a vitally important foundation […]

The ever-surprising and original Nellie McKay has a new CD out of songs from the 1960s, “My Weekly Reader.” In addition to a melting version of the Beatles’ “If I Fell,” she sings works by Country Joe, Moby Grape, Frank Zappa, Richard Fariña, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and the Kinks, […]

Dorothy’s Dozen

Dorothy’s Dozen

BY DAVID NOH | Once upon a time, in the distant BR (Before RuPaul) era, real women ruled our hearts in gay dives. Barbra Streisand at the Lion, Bette Midler at the Continental Baths, Ellen Greene at Reno Sweeney made us swoon, cocktails in hand, with their big, actual voices, talent, and camp sensibilities. Carrying on the […]

All-American Dream

All-American Dream

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | Steve Grand may well have felt that lightning struck. In July 2013, the songwriter, singer, piano player, and guitarist from the Chicago suburbs released a self-produced debut single, “All American Boy,” that went viral in a matter of days. The country-infused song soon scored him appearances on “Good Morning America,” CNN, and […]

Two Fresh Voices

Two Fresh Voices

BY DAVID NOH | I always welcome a truly fresh and talented voice in the theater — they are all too rare, but Sheila Callaghan definitely is one.
