Original Artist Series – Online Edition

On Sunday, November 1, 2020 at 8PM EST, I will be performing 6 songs as part of an online show in celebration of Halloween. Brought to you by Melissa E. Driscol through her Original Artist Series, my fellow performers will include Chelsea Paige Hauptstueck & Veronica Scorcia. For more information and links to watch the show FREE, please visit the Facebook Event Page

I will be doing a set that includes “Vampire Drag Queen” and some fun covers, including an encore performance of my Star Wars mini-musical extravaganza. And, yes, I will be utilizing projection design–in exciting new ways, most notably in a new piece I am premiering that tackles toxic masculinity.

For anyone who has yearned to see me perform at the historic Stonewall Inn, this is the closest to that experience you’ve ever gotten as I’ve performed in Melissa’s Halloween show at Stonewall twice before. Perhaps one day, our shows will be broadcast from the legendary landmark itself when live performance makes its return.

For its 10th anniversary, I’ve given this song a makeover. I wrote it during the fight for marriage equality, yet the song still resonates given the actions and goals of the current administration. This July, I celebrate 10 years of marriage with the man this song is about. No one can take that away from us.
