D'Angora will be joined onstage by Noel Cody, Christine Gonzales, Alex Kissel and Sally Schwab as Princess Diana. The evening will feature direction by Michael Duling and musical direction by Tracy Stark with Ken Benshish on drums. Divas I've Done, which was penned by D'Angora, recounts the actor's "tales of stalking Jane Eyre's Marla Schaffel, overindulging in Fran Drescher memorabilia on Ebay, seeing Maya Days in Aida 32 times, and rediscovering his love for Little Shop's Ellen Greene. Through tributes, original parodies, standards, and unforgettable stories Tom guides the audience through an outrageous evening that turns into a ridiculous contest to decide who the number one diva should be." A diva-to-be-announced will make a guest appearance in the show.

Divas I've Done played sold-out runs in Los Angeles, Boston, Provincetown, and 21 weeks Off-Broadway. The cabaret act won the 2004 Backstage Bistro Award for Best Musical Comedy. Among the "divas" who have joined D'Angora onstage are Marla Schaffel, Maya Days, Ellen Greene, Christine Pedi, Kristy Cates, Natalie Joy Johnson and Jennifer Rae Beck.

The Laurie Beechman Theater is located within the West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street. There is a $12 cover charge and a two-drink minimum. For reservations call (212) 695-6909. For more information visit www.tomdangora.com.
