by Troy Frisby - May 5, 2017

Between the two of them, drag icons Sherry Vine and Joey Arias have more than 50 years of performing experience combined. Not only that, but their working relationship and enduring friendship began more than 20 years ago. Though they've toured with one another around the world over the years, it's been a few years since they've teamed up for a big show in New York, where they first met. Thankfully, the legendary divas will reunite onstage in the city for a new show at Feinstein's/54 Below, as part of Garth Schilling's (also known as Miss Vodka Stinger) drag-themed Thursday night series called LATE NIGHT DRAG. The run will also include Cacophony Daniels, Marti Gould Cummings, Varla Jean Merman, Ray DeForest, RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE star Alexis Michelle, and Miss Vodka Stinger herself with the Martha Rayes. Prior to Vine and Arias' show, the pair pressed pause on their first day of rehearsal to speak with us over the phone about their individual careers, more than two decades of collaboration, and reuniting onstage in the city that brought them together.

by BWW News Desk - Mar 18, 2015

Boeing, Boeing is a bedroom farce originally written in French by Marc Camoletti in 1961 and quickly adapted onto the English-speaking stage. Translated by Beverley Cross, the Guinness Book of World Records named it the most performed French comedy ever. Boeing, Boeing takes off with the outrageous lifestyle of an American ex-patriot named Bernhard living in Paris. He is the ultimate ladies man dating three airline stewardesses in the early 1960's at the peak of the Golden Age of air travel. His affairs seem to be intermingling well until the Boeing company develops faster airplanes that lead to a romantic nightmare of crossed schedules, near misses in the bedroom and riotous consequences.
