VIDEO: Chris Isaacson Presents I'VE WRITTEN A LETTER TO DADDY Dance Performance as Baby Jane
Capping a weeklong celebration of the premiere of Ryan Murphy's new anthology series Feud: Bette and Joan on FX Networks, the Drag-Tacular Live Concert Event, an evening of old Hollywood glamour, took place on Friday, March 3 at Spectra Lounge at Wolfgang Puck (in the Pacific Design Center) in West Hollywood, CA. Special guest host Tony Award-nominee Sam Harris anchored the evening which featured shimmering chanteuse Niki Haris, singer Jake Simpson, Kay-Ta Matsuno's 10-piece band, DJ Laszlo (Adele, Christina Aguilera, Demi Levato), and special appearances by Heklina, Peaches Christ, and BIANCA Del Rio in the LA debut of Whatever Happened to BIANCA Del Rio?
The finale featured 24 male and female dancers in Blanche and Baby Jane drag performing to a remixed version of the iconic "I've Written a Letter to Daddy" (music by Frank De Vol; lyrics by Bob Merrill) sung by Bette Davis and featuring Shelley Segal, remixed by DJ Laszlo, and choreographed by Penny Wildman under the direction of Christopher G. Ciccone (Madonna's The Girlie Show). Video is now available on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UTGIIMDBpE.
The Drag-Tacular Live Concert Event, coordinated and produced by Chris Isaacson Presents along with associate producers Ronn Goswick and Matthew Herrmann, was attended by an overflow crowd that also enjoyed hors d'oeuvres created by Wolfgang Puck, an open bar featuring lewd libations, and opportunities to travel back to 1962 with Bette and Joan for Instagram-able photo opportunities.
