A pre-show event, beginning 30 minutes prior to the show, will feature music, giveaways, drinks and socializing time. The weekly "Drag-Off" contest, hosted by Sweetie (the drag persona of Daniel Booth) and a roster of guest co-hosts that changes each week, is patterned after such 70's game as "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Gong Show," mixed with "America's Got Talent" in drag. The final outcome is determined by the audience; Alex Perez directs. Testa received Tony Award nominations for 42nd Street and On the Town, and an Obie Award for From Above. Her other stage credits include Xanadu, Marie Christine, …Forum, The Rink, Marilyn, Barnum, Regrets Only, See What I Wanna See, First Lady Suite, String of Pearls and The Vagina Monologues.
