Nice Asimov! BenDeLaCreme Shoots For The Stars Comments (0)

IMG_3702

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 4.37.07 PMI don't know where you think BeDeLaCreme falls in the ranking of all of RuPaul's greatest queens, but her spot would be infinitely, intergalactically higher if you ever catch her one-drag-queen show BenDeLaCreme's Cosmos.

Closing today at the Laurie Beechman (but back in the fall), the piece shows off DeLa's amazing sense of wordplay (which is light years beyond duh-obvious puns) via her stupid-smart character, who flits from space cadet to rocket scientist with the greatest of ease.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 4.41.20 PMThe entire show spoofs science (how's that for subject matter?), all the while communicating the basic premise of quantum mechanics, cell theory, the Big Bang, evolution and more ... accurately!

If your theory is that BenDeLaCreme is one of her generation's most talented drag queens, it's highly provable—only your attendance is required.

Catch her any time you can. Uranus will thank you.

Christ Returns To NYC: RETURN TO GAY GARDENS Comments (0)

IMG_3439Thomas Dekker, Peaches Christ, Jinkx Monsoon, Mink Stole & Bob the Drag Queen

Barely made it to the second sold-out show of Return to Gray Gardens, the one-night-only presentation by Peaches Christ (fresh, arguably, from San Francisco) that spoofed the classique Grey Gardens (1975).

Christ came through with a stellar case, including Thomas Dekker (Heroes, All About Evil), Mink Stole of John Waters infamy and NYC's own Bob the Drag Queen, attempting Onassis realness. Two hunks were on hand to play the Maysles Brothers, who directed the original. (One was doing double-duty as choreographer, werk.)

IMG_3426Lots of pussy on that stage.

Jinkx Monsoon, as Little Edie from the film, was the obvious highlight, but you know that if you saw her Snatch Game appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race, which the bitch won in a walk.

The next time you get a chance to see Jinkx in NYC is in The Vaudevillians: Bringing Up Baby May 21—24, 2015, at the Laurie Beechman. The first one was BRILLIANT.

Had a gay old time at RuPaul's Drag Race Battle of the Seasons tour—a variety show featuring some of the fave queens from the series doing solo schtick, singing and participating in comedy orgies—last night at Irving Plaza, meaning I was one of the gayest and oldest people there. Who knew the fans of the show are so female and so young?

I have to say that World of Wonder continues to only be associated with well conceived, well written, funny and value-packed events. This shit went on for almost three hours!

IMG_2768Going nuclear for Winters

I got to attend the VIP meet-and-greet, which was a hoot. On display were BenDeLaCreme, Pandora Boxx, Jiggly Calient, Darienne Lake, Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska Thunderfuck, Michelle Visage and Ivy Winters. (Through no fault of her own, Needles barely made it to the event at all, so couldn't do the VIP part.)

VIsageBreast/man

In the VIP area, I snapped every drag queen in my sight, including Visage, that great female drag queen. I'm a longtime fan of Seduction and she is a longtime fan of Madonna, so that made for a potent encounter for me. She kindly gave me a quote-let for my Madonna book and posed, though she initially threw her hand in front of my camera when I asked for a solo shot. She wanted to know what it was for, then said she'd only pose with me, not for me. That's a sneaky way to make sure photographers can't sell your headshot to agencies. The bitch is experienced. She looked great, as did her boobs, which, like her reputation, precede her.

IMG_2828It takes 2, it takes 2...there's you and you!

All the girls were great. Chatted briefly with Monsoon about the death of Albert Maysles, in light of her upcoming Return to Gray Gardens show (ENTER HERE FOR TICKETS).

Boxx seemed kinda over it all (but was unfailingly nice to fans), an impression that was borne out once she hit the stage.

IMG_2779It said NO SMOKING, but Alaska was anyway.

IMG_2789Jiggly was the gold standard.

Keep reading, because this event had enough shade to cool off the Gobi...
