"Broadway Divas as Gay Icons" will be the topic at hand on Sept. 13 at 7 PM when New York Times critic Stephen Holden interviews singer-actress Eartha Kitt. The event is part of the "Times Talks" series of panels. Eartha Kitt recently starred in the Broadway musical The Wild Party. Kitt, who well answers to the descriptions of "diva" and "gay icon," is best known as a slinky, self-referential cabaret singer. She has also authored several memoirs.
The talk will take place at the Lesbian and Gay Community Services Center at 1 Little West 12th Street in Manhattan. A $10 donation is suggested. No reservations are required. For more information, call (212) 620-7310.
