The Lady In Question is Charles Busch 

with filmmakers John Catania and Charles Ignacio

Stonewall National Museum – Wilton Manors Gallery
2157 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors, FL 33305
  “High-camp delights…Mr. Busch…is every bit as alluring out of drag as in.”  – Laura Kern, The New York Times
Best Documentary
2007 International Gay Film Awards
2006 Austin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Fire Island Film & Video Festival
Stonewall Museum is honored to present filmmakers, and Wilton Manors residents, John Catania and Charles Ignacio in a discussion and screening of their tribute to Charles Busch, New York’s doyen of drag. The film now celebrates its 10-year anniversary after its successful premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film features interviews with Rosie O’Donnell, Kathleen Turner, B.D. Wong, Boy George, Michael Musto.
In Catania and Ignacio’s first feature documentary we look deep inside the world of one of the most prolific, talented, and outrageous New York theater artists of the last two decades, beloved playwright, actor, novelist, drag artist, and leading lady, Charles Busch. Splashed on the map in 1984 at the dingy yet inspired Limbo Lounge as one of the burgeoning artists of New York’s East Village arts scene, Busch’s scandalously sex-charged, cross-dressing classic, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom quickly became a theater phenomenon. It moved from the Limbo Lounge to the Provincetown Playhouse and ran an unprecedented five years, securing its place as one of the longest-running shows in Off-Broadway history. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom also marked the birth of one of New York’s most memorable theatrical companies, as Busch’s legendary Theater-in-Limbo plays brought together an eclectic troupe of actors whose talents are on display in rare archival video footage.
Charles Busch is the star of Die Mommie Die! and Psycho Beach Party. For nearly three decades actor and writer Charles Busch has been the premiere drag artist of the American stage. His plays include The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife (Broadway), Vampire Lesbians of SodomThe Lady in QuestionRed Scare on SunsetShanghai MoonOur Leading Lady starring Kate Mulgrew, and most recently The Third Story, which starred Charles Busch and Kathleen Turner.
JOIN US at 6:30 for a glass of wine before the film presentation with John Catania and Charles Ignacio. Refreshments courtesy of Barefoot Wine and Bubbly. Free and open to the public.
