Controversial drag diva and Reality TV star Mimi Imfurst presents the World Premiere of her solo tell-all MIMI IMFURST: I WOULD HATE ME, TOO. It will be presented for one night only Saturday, November 10 at The Laurie Beechman Theater.
MIMI IMFURST: I WOULD HATE ME, TOO is the story of how one of NYC's favorite drag queens became one of America's most hated drag superstars. After a relentless campaign, Mimi was picked to appear on the 3rd season of RuPaul's Drag Race. She only got 8 1/2 minutes of camera time, but she left a lasting impression -- as one of the "villains" of the show. Armed only with a cocktail and a loaded mouth, Imfurst offers a candid and often blunt look at a life turned upside down by a reality show. And she is ready to spill the beans on her controversial return to TV on RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars, her time on Big Ang, Celebrity Apprentice and Jersey Couture -- and, of course, dish the dirt on all of her drag co-stars.
Mimi Imfurst has appeared on several of America's favorite TV shows including NBC's Celebrity Apprentice (with Lisa Lampanelli), ABC's What Would You Do?, CBS' The Tony Awards, MTV's Jackass, Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race & RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars, VH1's Big Ang, Oxygen's Jersey Couture and more. She has served as an opening act for both Kathy Griffin and Academy Award Winner Mo'Nique. Other TV/film credits include One Night Standup, The Howard Stern Show, The Real World, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and hostess for Logo's The Big Gay Sketch Show. No stranger to the New York theatre scene, Mimi has played Cher in Boylesque the Off-Broadway parody of the Cher/Christina Aguilera movie Burlesque; Roz in The Golden Girls parody musical Thank You For Being A Friend; Natalie in Facts of Life: The Last Episode; and title roles in the original musical Rhoda Heartbreak, the horror comedy The Diary of Anne Frankenstein and the acclaimed musical Hedwig and The Angry Inch. Imfurst is also 1/3 of the "girl group" Xelle, who released their first EP this fall after breaking several acclaimed singles including "Party Girl," "Invincible" and the current hit "Queen" (with a video featuring Pandora Boxx, Tammie Brown, Jiggly Caliente, JuJuBee, Manila Luzon, Alexis Mateo, PhiPhi O'Hara, Raven, Shannel, and Yara Sofia).
MIMI IMFURST: I WOULD HATE ME TOO runs Saturday, November 10 at 7:30pm.
