Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical

Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical

It is rather surprising that until now nobody has done a stage show or film about the life of Sylvester, a flamboyant African-American singer whose flame burned brightly and memorably during the disco years. (A documentary is apparently in the works.) Years before Boy George, Sylvester was cross-dressing (although he rejected the label “drag queen”), […]

Luba Mason

Luba Mason slinked onto the stage of the Metropolitan room in a cream floor-length gown accented with blue brocade flowers riding the curves of her lithe frame.

Tom Andersen

Tom Andersen

The closing performance of Tom Andersen’s recent Don’t Tell Mama show (his first solo program in almost a decade) had a casual pre-Labor Day vibe. He wore cool summer attire, befitting a box social. And he’d tucked plenty of fresh, thoughtfully prepared musical treats in his picnic hamper. He opened the show with “Gosh, It’s […]
