If you don't know who John Epperson is, I'm not mad at you—I pity you. A drag artist extraordinaire, he is the mistressmind behind Lypsinka, a hysterical blend of Ann Miller, Maureen O'Hara and a gay Joan Crawford robot. In her shows, Lypsinka mouths along to a crazed soundtrack of classic and obscure lines from movies and other sources, representing a nightmarishly hilarious laundry list of most of the important things ever uttered.
After too long an absence, Lypsinka is back, performing three separate shows from Wednesday, November 5, to Saturday, January 3, at the Connelly Theater (220 East Fourth St., NYC). Look for her in:
Lypsinka! The Boxed Set
The Passion of the Crawford
John Epperson: Show Trash
I already know all three will be amazing. I saw Lypsinka at The Vortex in Chicago around 1990 and waited in a long line to get her autograph on a dollar bill. Her performance was mind-blowing back then—how did Epperson ever gather all those soundbytes and edit them so seamlessly???
But I also had a little sneak preview at a press meet-and-greet last night, at which Lypsinka was in top form. She tore through an exhausting sequence of her signature phony phone-answering in spite of some injuries; we never would've known if she hadn't told us.
See you at all three shows!

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2 out of ****
Sylvester (September 6, 1947—December 16, 1988) was a force of nature—he forced his nature on a world that was at times unwilling to accept him for the person he didn't choose to be, and for the person he chose to be. It's hard to imagine Sylvester's brand of authenticity bringing him success in the 1970s, but he had a good imagination because success is what he had. With some indelible disco classics and a refusal to play the game required of most other popular singers, he became a gay icon and an inspiration in his short life—he died of AIDS at 41.
In Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, Anthony Wayne (who also wrote the book and is co-director and co-producer with his partner Kendrell Bowman) resurrects Sylvester, doing a damn fine job of disproving any notion that Sylvester was inimitable. In a performance that's informed by Wayne's obvious respect for the icon, he recalls without mimicking Sylvester's piercing falsetto in a string of soaring musical numbers that draw from the entertainer's entire oeuvre.
