The Los Angeles LGBT Center Presents AND THE BEAT GOES ON Starring Jackie Beat, 7/19
The Los Angeles LGBT Center's Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center welcomes Los Angeles drag superstar Jackie Beat to its Renberg Theatre for her first solo show in the plush Hollywood venue. Ms. Beat is celebrating a quarter century of drag genius with this one-night-only, once-in-a-lifetime, one-of-a-kind, best-of show. Featuring her favorite world-famous sick 'n' twisted song parodies, video flashbacks, and lots of special surprises, this golden girl's silver anniversary is not to be missed!
Jackie Beat, the bitter creation of artist and writer Kent Fuher, was born in Los Angeles way back in 1989-when Melrose Avenue still featured thrift stores and the rock bands on the Sunset Strip could actually play instruments and sing live! Over the past 25 years, Jackie has appeared in countless stage productions, movies and TV shows. She has also toured as the opening act for comic legend Roseanne Barr and written material for Rosie O'Donnell, Joan Rivers, Ross Mathews, Jennifer Coolidge, Kate Flannery, and more. La Beat is the subject of the full-length documentary and film festival favorite, My Name Is Jackie Beat. She also co-founded the electro rock band Dirty Sanchez with famed club promoter and actor Mario Diaz and DJ Barbeau. For more information, visit missjackiebeat.com.
