After a sold out New York City debut at Joe's in January -- a show that the Village Voice deemed one of its 10 Best -- The Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret returns with a new show. This balls-to-the-wall drag cabaret is hosted by Martha Graham Cracker, who is, perhaps, the world's tallest and hairiest drag queen. Backed by a four-piece live band, Martha Graham Cracker, hailed as "The Drag Queen King" by the Philadelphia Inquirer, performs new arrangements and mashups of songs by artists ranging from Prince and Crowded House to Motley Crue and Nina Simone, and a bit of everything in between. Martha Graham Cracker is played by Dito van Reigersberg, co-founding co-artistic director of Philadelphia's Obie-winning Pig Iron Theatre Company. The character was born in van Reigersberg's East Village kitchen when he was attending the Martha Graham School of Dance.
