It's been about a year since I last blogged, though that thought seems unreal to me. As Judy Collins would sing, "Who knows where the time goes?"
Yesterday was my birthday (Friday the 13th) so it was full of good dance music and friends' and my brother's (recovering from Bell's Palsy!) well wishes by phone and e-mail so who can ask for more. My friend, Kevin, took me to Justin Sayre's monthly cabaret show. For May, Sayre and his guests comically revitalized the movie "Valley of the Dolls" (with songs) on Thursday night, so I had my "birthday on" when I awoke Friday morning, ready to deliver a stack of my new promo cd, "Fagtastic," which has been moving like proverbial hotcakes.
I understand that hunky Will Swenson, starring in the truly fabulous Broadway hit "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" (pictured above), snatched himself up a copy of "Fagtastic" the other week. (To help him get into character?) That show was just super-cute & discolicious with an amazingly talented cast, especially the three leads. Add disco balls, confetti dropping from the theater ceiling, hot retro tunes & Nick Adams lipsynching while seated inside (and strapped in, securely, one hopes) a giant, glittering Monolo Blahnik stiletto that hovers menacingly over the orchestra pit. There was a packed house hungry for cocktails & souvenirs, so my friend, Jade, and I thought Bette Midler (quoted as saying, "If there are three things I love, it's shoes, drag queens and live theater!") and other investors for this production will see themselves profit majorly.
Also recently, I -- quite by accident -- discovered a very nice assessment of my "Gay Sock Hop 2" promo. To read all about it, copy/paste and go to:
