Musical Mondays to Return to NYC as 'Monday Musicals' at XL; Billy Porter to Kick Off
The owners of XL Nightclub have just announced that as previously rumored, they will indeed be 'taking over' Musical Mondays, which will be renamed as Monday Musicals, and will kick off with an exciting lineup of special events beginning with a performance by Tony Award winning Kinky Boots star Billy Porter who will help launch Monday Musicals at XL on August 12th. Additionally, Kate Middleton¹s cousin, burlesque star Katrina Darling, will perform at XL, in a special show dubbed 'God Save the Queen' on Saturday, September 14th.
New York City's largest "straight-friendly" cabaret and dance nightclub is also gearing up to welcome a new face to its team. Dougie Meyer will join XL Nightclub as Promotional Director after working as Splash¹s Director of Promotions & Events for the last 8 years. Meyer will carry over the concept of Musical Mondays, which will be enhanced, supercharged and dubbed "MondayMusicals at XL," to the Hell¹s Kitchen hotspot housed within THE OUT NYC urban resort.
"After an off the charts first year in business in 2012, the addition of Dougie Meyer will help maintain XL¹s position as the number one gay nightclub in NYC," says XL Nightclub partner Ian Reisner.
The Orion Experience, an intergalactic rock concert adventure, will also land at XL on August 1stand the famed Hot Mess Drag Revue will continue to run every Friday night at 9:30pm. Additionally, the hilarious Pam Ann will return to the club September 21st and 22nd.
