I met Jim and Keith and Jason and Jeremy last night for Dance Divas, a drag show featuring dancers from all the professional companies around Chicago. The show was great, the music and choreography were a lot of fun, the Fairmont Hotel ballroom was pretty spectacular ... but we had serious issues with some of the costumes the girls wore. Drag queens do not -- I repeat, DO NOT -- go out on stage or even in public in Butterick dresses.
There was a VIP cocktail reception beforehand with huge muscleboys working the crowd to sell raffle tickets. I bought tickets from one of the guys -- and he slipped me his phone number in return. WOOF. So I'd like to think I won the raffle before they even had the drawing.
In other news, why can't I find the Tony Awards on the TiVo menu? I've looked under Tonys, The Tonys, Awards, American Theatre Wing and even Broadway, but the show's not listed. And I won't be anywhere near a TV this Sunday when they're on. ACK!
