My Comrade Editor Linda Simpson here…
I’m so excited. Tonight, I return to the legitimate stage in the new dark comedy, The Bad Hostess.
The playwright, Les Simpson (My Comrade's publisher and my, uh, brother), was kind of enough to write me the starring role of a drag queen performer whose plans for a festive Christmas Eve party are thwarted by a raging blizzard.
The only revelers to show up are her caustic drag-diva neighbor, a coked-up club promoter and an uninvited young couple—she’s a showbiz wannabe, he’s studying to be—gasp!—a minister.
Despite my character's best efforts to keep things cheery—holiday punch, Bingo, Cheetos—the soiree deteriorates into a night of bitter family memories, despicable karaoke, and rants against God and religion. Ah, the joys of Christmas!
If you’re in NYC, come on down! It’s only $15. And I promise to memorize my lines.
Coming soon: Exclusive behind-the-scene photos!
