Philly's Hit "Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas" Returns for Encore Performance

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2011) - On an unseasonably warm Saturday in early March, a sellout crowd of more than 400 exuberant fans descended on Voyeur (1221 St. James St), Philly's most popular nightclub, to watch the debut performance of Nightlifegay.com's Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas. What transpired between 9 and 11 PM that evening has been hailed as the most professional and innovative drag production in the storied history of Philadelphia's gay community. Bruce Yelk -- Nightlifegay.com's principal owner and producer of Dragapalooza -- was overwhelmed by positive reviews for weeks after the show.

After some careful coordination, Yelk is thrilled to announce that Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas will return to Voyeur Nightclub for a second performance on Saturday, May 21stat 9 PM. Whether you saw the first show or not, mark your calendar for May 21st! The encore production of Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas combines the best numbers from the first show with several new pieces, which are guaranteed to raise the bar even higher!!

Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas is a spectacular celebration of songs from the Great White Way's most iconic musicals, including Wicked, Chicago, Hairspray, Dreamgirls, Mary Poppins, Little Shop of Horrors, and Rent. Most numbers are ensemble pieces, and every step of each selection is expertly choreographed by Jason Josephs (aka, Diana Dharling).

The cast includes Philly's biggest drag superstars, with Brittany Lynn, Diana Dharling, Isis, Navaya Shay, Joey Josephs, Ms. Aeryanah Von Moi, Omyra Lynn, Mrs. Periwinkle, and more! Yelk is also bringing back two seasoned veterans and crowd favorites from the first show, NYC's Jason Cozmo and Brenda Dharling -- both of whom will perform new numbers on May 21st. Brittany Lynn will again shoulder the hosting duties -- complete with playful barbs and a plentiful supply of outrageous one-liners.

"The response to Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas was incredible," said Yelk. "The encore performance will feature a few new numbers that are sure to have the crowd standing on their feet."
