Article Pixel

Tom D'Angora's award winning musical comedy, Divas I've Done, currently playing Upstairs at Studio 54, announces its next line-up of special guest divas.

Sunday, April 10th: Tom welcomes Julie Foldesi who is currently understudying Tony award winner Sutton Foster in Little Women. She will be singing the shows stand-out number "Astonishing".

Sunday, April 17th: Divas I've Done will play host to the "WELCOME BACK Kristy Cates" party. Kristy recently flew into Toronto last minute to open the tour of Wicked as every teenage girl's favorite new heroine, Elphaba. She'll talk about the crazy events surrounding the tour's opening and belt-out the spine tingling "Defying Gravity".

Sunday, April 24th: The ill-fated Off-Broadway production of Bare may be no more, but the show's most fabulous diva, Natalie Joy Johnson, will be on hand to share stories about the show and about working alongside Tom at Ellen's Stardust Diner.

Divas I've Done is an outrageous evening of tributes, parodies, songs, and stories celebrating the ladies who touched this young show queen's life. From The Golden Girls and Fran Drescher to Liza Minnelli and Ellen Greene, Divas I've Done is a fabulous evening of diva worship that turns into a nightly contest to decide who the number one diva will be.

Each week Tom invites a special guest diva to perform during the encore of the show. In the past Tom has had the privilege of sharing the Divas I've Done stage with Tony nominee Marla Schaffel doing her own diva tribute to Barbara Streisand, Aida's Maya Days belting out the show's eleven o'clock number, and the legendary Ellen Greene recreating her trademark "Somewhere That's Green".

Backstage West called Divas I've Done, "…a zany cabaret show driven by [Tom's] captivatingly warm sense of humor…a star of tomorrow in a delicious sampling of New York cabaret at its sophisticated best", while Playbill simply described the show as "…Just Jack…only ten times funnier".

Divas I've Done is directed by Michael Duling and is accompanied by Tracy Stark on piano and Ken Benshish on drums. The show also features back-up singers Kate Pazakis, Christine Gonzales, and Noel Cody. Sally Schwab understudies.

Divas I've Done plays Sunday nights at 7:30 PM Upstairs at Studio 54 located at 254 West 54th St. Tickets can be purchased for $40 through Ticketmaster at 212-307-4100 or at Ticketmaster.com.

Tom D'Angora's debut CD, The Pink Album, is currently available for purchase Upstairs at Studio 54.
