I saw the following presentation last night as part of the Thinkfest conference. The host and a few of the Drag Queens were different, but Dito Van Reigersberg remains, he is one of the best actors in Philadelphia. Do tell him you heard about this in the Erotic Literary Salon blog, I want him to know how much I support his work.

The incomparable Martha Graham Cracker (the alter ego of Pig Iron Theatre Company’s Dito Van Reigersberg) hosts an intimate evening of revealing interviews and live performances with some of Philly’s top drag performers. Channeling her inner James Lipton, Martha probes these fabulous gender benders about the meaning behind the music and the makeup. The drag stars each perform a song that exemplifies their story best, accompanied by Martha’s cabaret partner-in-crime, Victor Fiorillo. DitoMartha gets into the act, too, performing and answering questions, including a few from the audience!
Featuring two of Philly’s favorite drag queens- Icon Ebony Fierce and Ian Morrison (a.k.a. Brittany Lynn). Plus, drag king extraordinaire Jenn Kidwell (a.k.a. Stan)!
