Husband-and-wife actors Terrence Mann and Charlotte d'Amboise, who currently star in the Tony-winning revival of Pippin, host Broadway's Best in Drag June 9 at the Abrons Art Center.
At the 6:30 PM event, Mann and d'Amboise join director and producer Robert La Fosse for a "pageant-style drag queen extravaganza, bringing together ten fabulous performers from Broadway and beyond. Contestants will sashay through a three-round competition of evening wear, talent and interview, with audience members voting for their favorite. [A] one-of-a-kind tiara [has been] designed by Patricia Underwood exclusively for Broadway's Best in Drag."
The evening includes an open bar and raffle prizes.
Confirmed contestants include Crystal Demure, Douglas McGeoch as Didi Panache, Frankie James Grande (Pageant), Marti Gould Cummings, Patrick Rinn (Chicago), Sam Given (Zombies) as Millie Grams, Leo Gugu and Sasha Velour.
