The Time Out New York Lounge, in association with New World Stages and 21st Century Life, moved on to Week Four of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DRAG ! This sassy elimination competition on Wednesday nights features themed performances, ruthlessly scrutinized by a rotating panel of celebrity judges, at the Time Out New York Lounge at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street (between Eighth & Ninth Avenues). This week's judges were fabulous Charles Busch and the extraordinary cast of The Divine Sister, now playing Off-Broadway at the Soho Playhouse.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DRAG is hosted by Paige Turner, who has been working the NYC boards for the past several years. A cross between Debra Messing and Elle Woods, with a little retro flair and a whole lot of musical theater, she has headlined at Splash, Therapy, Pieces, The Ritz, among others. She has hosted bingo and karaoke more times than she'd like to admit. Paige and her gal pal Eve Starr hosted the well received Glitz Crackers in midtown for over a year, showcasing Broadway's hottest newcomers. Paige hailed by critics: "this showbiz spitfire is not to be missed and continues to amaze!"

Next week at the Judge's Table will be Brandon Voss (The Advocate), Everett Quinton (Devil Boys From Beyond), and John Tartaglia (Shrek the Musical, Avenue Q)! New contestants are accepted each week for the chance to win cash and prizes awarded to the most fabulous of the week. The Grand Finale, filled with the favorites from previous weeks, will be on Wednesday, December 1st. Audience votes determine the fiercest queen of them all, who will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to host a drag night at the Time Out New York Lounge at New World Stages!
