RuPaul's Drag Race favorite premieres hot new evening of entertainment about an eternity of suffering.
July 28 - 31 at The Laurie Beechman Theatre
RuPaul's Drag Race favorite BenDeLaCreme returns to New York with the debut of her latest highly theatrical blend of burlesque, comedy, performance art and music. "BenDeLaCreme's Inferno A-Go-Go," an evening of entertainment about an eternity of suffering, will begin performances July 28 at The Laurie Beechman Theatre.
In "BenDeLaCreme's Inferno A-Go-Go," celebrated story-muddler BenDeLaCreme seeks to answer that age old question: What the Hell? Turning her gay gaze toward “Dante’s Inferno” -- the original travel brochure of the damned -- this rollicking romp through nine circles of fire and fun is equal parts brimstone and rhinestones. Get your tickets now, or suffer forever more!
BenDeLaCreme has appeared in theaters and nightclubs from coast to coast ever since the fateful day in 2002 when s/he realized that normally unsavory behavior could be dressed up in fancy clothes and called "Performance Art." Formerly based in Chicago, but with lucite heels now planted firmly in Seattle, BenDeLaCreme combines his/her background in the performing & visual arts with a love of spectacle, glamour, and Saturday morning cartoons to create a thick sludge of sparkly entertainment. BenDeLaCreme is best known from season six of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” where she won “Miss Congeniality” and has since been voted one of the show’s “15 fan favorite queens of all time.” In 2014, the premiere of Terminally Delightful wowed audiences nationally, including an encore engagement in New York. Her 2015 follow-up, Cosmos, blended Carl Sagan with cocktail culture and cemented her reputation as one of drags most creative talents.
"BenDeLaCreme's Inferno A-Go-Go" runs July 28 - 30 at 7pm with a special drag brunch performance on Sunday, July 31 at 1:30pm. The Laurie Beechman Theater (inside West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street -- at Ninth Avenue, accessible from the A,C,E,N,R,V,F,1,2,3 trains at 42nd Street).
