We announced Nark Magazine’s annual “Gender Blender” line-up for Pride Thursday, June 25, 2015 a couple weeks ago. This year’s big draggy bash moves back to Neumos and stars Miss Fame, Violet and Ginger from this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
That Thursday just got even MORE interesting with the news that the Season 6 winner of RPDR, the comedy insult queen, BIANCA DEL RIO, will return to Seattle for a June 25th performance of her hit one woman show, “Rolodex of Hate” which she’s played to sold out theaters across the country. Brought to you courtesy of Seattle PrideFest, Sinfinite Events, Baltic Room, & Five Senses Reeling Events, the show will turn beloved Capitol Hill cinema, The Egyptian, into a live venue for the night.
The good news is, the start time is 9:30 pm so super fans of RPDR can actually go to both shows, which are in venues only two blocks apart from each other!
As for Miss Bianca and her “Rolodex”, here’s what you can expect:
Get ready Seattle…Bianca is back and this time it’s for Seattle Pride! Bianca will be taking over the Egyptian Theater in the heart of Capitol Hill for one night only. She will be hosting an exclusive VIP meet & greet for VIP ticket holders prior to the show at a private location nearby.
Bianca embarks on her “Rolodex of Hate” tour, a mix of typical drag camp, cabaret and stand-up material fans have come to expect from the “Queen of Mean.”
“I’ve been making lots of appearances and doing what I’ve done for the past 18 years,” said Roy Haylock, the 39-year-old West Bank native who created the alter-ego Bianca Del Rio while growing up, performing and designing costumes in New Orleans’ theater and gay nightclub scenes in the late 1990s and early 2000s. “The greatest thing for me was doing (‘Drag Race’), and so Live Nation came to me and asked if I’d be interested in my own specific show.
“It’s basically my point of view of the world,” Haylock continued. “It will be a one-person show, a one-hour show. And there will be lots of costume changes.”
Tickets for this mega event are on sale NOW at StrangerTickets with VIP packages available that include a Meet n’ Greet with the Queen of Mean.
People LOOOOOOVE Bianca….these tickets will go fast!
