The Supreme Fabulettes, All-Male Female Close Harmony Vocal Group, to Play West End Season, Featuring Johnny Hazzard
16 Jan 2013
The Supreme Fabulettes, an all-male female close harmony vocal group, will play a West End season of eight performances at London's Leicester Square Theatre, beginning Feb. 16.
They will also support Leslie Jordan's appearances in Fruit Fly, both at Leicester Square Theatre and at Salford's Lowry Theatre.
Their live shows are directed by William Baker, Kylie Minogue's creative director, and Johnny Hazzard, the American gay porn star who appeared in the video of their debut single "You Ruined My Christmas," will join them in his London stage debut in live sketches.
The Supreme Fabulettes became global internet sensations when the video of "You Ruined by Christmas," written and directed by Boy George, was viewed over 100,000 times in just three weeks.
In a press statement, the group - which comprises Miss Vicki Vivacious, Miss Maddison Lee and Miss Vanilla Lush - commented, "The last two months have been a whirlwind of TV news and radio shows and location filming. We are honoured that Boy George has written two songs specially for us and directed hilarious videos, and now we have William Baker directing our live shows. Pinch us, please!"
In their live shows, they perform "Glee"-style song mash-ups of classic 1960s hits and contemporary songs by the likes of The Supremes, The Andrews Sisters, Adele, Alison Moyet and Beyonce, among many others. Their latest single "A Drag Queen is a Cowboy's Best Friend" is to be released Jan. 21, with a video released on youtube on Feb. 4.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
