Divas I've Done Plays Last Performance, Aug. 21

Divas I've Done, Tom D'Angora's ongoing tribute to his favorite Broadway sopranos, altos and mezzos, will play its final performance on Sunday, August 21st at 7:30 PM at the Kirk Theatre (Theatre Row, 410 W. 42nd St.).  The Bistro Award-winning show has been running for two years.

The show opened on July 2nd, 2003 at Don't Tell Mama and paid homage to some of D'Angora's favorite Broadway leading ladies, including Marla Schaffel (Jane Eyre), Maya Days (Aida), Liza Minnelli, and Ellen Greene (Little Shop of Horrors).  "Through outrageous stories and musical tributes Tom sang about life had Marla Schaffel won the Tony, cheered the audience on in 'Ring Them Bells,' and dreamed of 'Somewhere That's Pink' (a gay parody of Little Shop of Horror's 'Somewhere That's Green')," according to a press article.  The first Divas I've Done featured Noel Cody, Cara LaGreen, and Stephanie Harwood on back-up and featured William Wade as musical director.  Michael Duling directed this and all subsequent editions of Divas I've Done. 
 
In 2004 Divas was redone to include Jane Wyman from "Falcon Crest," Princess Diana, Fran Drescher, and "The Golden Girls."  Since then, Divas I've Done has played a successful five week run at L.A.'s Room 5 Lounge, a sold-out engagement at Boston's Club Café, and two weeks at Provincetown's Meeting House Theatre.  D'Angora returned to New York to play Sunday and Monday nights Upstairs at Studio 54, where he had a nine week sold-out run.  Through-out the run he invited some of his favorite Broadway divas to perform in the show's encore. Greene, Schaffel, Days, Kristy Cates (Wicked), Christine Pedi (Forbidden Broadway), Julie Foldesi (Little Women) are just some of the Broadway broads to have been celebrated by Divas I've Done.
 
Tickets for Divas I've Done can be purchased through ticketcentral.com or at 212.279.4200.  Cody, Sally Schwab, and Ariana Schulman will perform in the final performance with Tracy Stark on piano and Ken Benshish on drums.  For more information visit tomdangora.com
