Now for something completely different (LXXVIX)

HOW DID I MISS THIS??!!

One year ago today,  JUDITH OF BETHULIA (a “Burlesque Based on Ancient Themes”) opened off-Broadway.  Billed as a Biblical comedy, this is the brain-child of Charles Busch – an American actor, screenwriter, playwright and female impersonator.  UNBELIEVABLE!!! Judith and a female impersonator on the same stage – two of my favorites!!!
