Billed as "a fierce night of hot divas, hotter dancing and the hottest digs," the evening will include a 7 PM cocktail party, followed by a fashion show featuring original Wig Out! cast members and a dance party. Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in a silent auction to own Toni-Leslie James' costumes from the Off-Broadway show. All proceeds benefit the Vineyard Theatre.

Drag superstar Sweetie, seen in Wig Out! as well as on "Project Runway," hosts the one-night-only event at the Vineyard Theatre. Original Off-Broadway cast members Joshua Cruz, McKenzie Frye, Angela Grovey and Rebecca Naomi Jones are scheduled to appear.

Tarell Alvin McCraney's Wig Out! began previews Sept. 11, 2008 and officially opened Sept. 30 at the Off-Broadway venue. Tina Landau directed the run that extended twice due to strong ticket sales and positive reviews and closed Nov. 16.

Tickets ($50-$100) to the Wig Out! Costume Extravaganza at The Vineyard Theatre, 108 East 15th Street, must be purchased in advance by calling (212) 353-0303 ext. 211 or online at VineyardTheatre.org.
