D'Angora — who will release his debut CD, "The Pink Album," on March 20 — will play Sunday nights at the famed New York City landmark beginning March 13 at 7:30 PM. The show features direction by Michael Duling, piano accompaniment by Tracy Stark and back-up vocals by Kate Pazakis, Christine Gonzales, Noel Cody and Cara LaGreen. Divas I've Done celebrates the women of the musical theatre who have meant the most to D'Angora, the young singer-actor who has been seen in Naked Boys Singing. Among the women saluted in his show are Liza Minnelli, Ellen Greene, Maya Days, Marla Schaffel, Fran Drescher, Princess Diana and the women of "The Golden Girls." D'Angora's evening includes tributes, original parodies, standards and stories. One highlight is a parody of Little Shop of Horrors' "Somewhere That's Green," entitled "Somewhere That's Pink."
The upcoming shows at Upstairs at Studio 54 will also boast a guest artist each Sunday. Drama Desk winner Marla Schaffel will join D'Angora March 13; Maya Days will join the diva-fest March 20, followed by Wicked's Kristy Cates on March 27 and Forbidden Broadway's Christine Pedi April 3.
