News release about Edie:
New York- turned- Las Vegas drag star EDIE will headline two free shows in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale on Dec. 7 and Dec. 9.
First up is Bill's Filling Station in Ft. Lauderdale on Monday, Dec. 7 at 10PM. Then she's off to Miami on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 9PM. That's when she kicks things up a notch at Vlada, her former home in New York City where she performed regularly for two years before moving to Las Vegas to star in Cirque du Soleil's ZUMANITY.
EDIE will perform her solo cabaret show, a fast-paced hour -and then some- of the leggy showgirl singing her favorites all with her signature 60s go-go flair. Add high-kicking choreography, witty off-the-cuff banter, and stories from her new life in Sin City and it’s “Edie Live!” Her back-to-back Florida shows will follow two sold-out nights in New York.
EDIE’s last New York appearance was at the Zipper Theater shortly before she left for Las Vegas in December 2007. One month later she assumed the role of Emcee - the role originated by Joey Arias- and became the new “Mistress of Sensuality” in Cirque du Soleil’s ZUMANITY at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. Edie just started her third contract and is scheduled to appear through August 2010. Since her debut in the show, Edie has performed for over a million people.
A native of Portland, OR, EDIE began her professional dance career at the age of 17 with Ballet Oregon. For the next eleven years she danced with Pacific Northwest Ballet, Ballet Chicago, and Pennsylvania Ballet before moving to New York to pursue musical theater. EDIE quickly became a fixture in New York City where she racked up a bevy of awards including Best Drag Queen (HX Award), Best Dance Artist and Entertainer of the Year (Glammy Award). She starred in her autobiographical, off-Broadway show “LEGS!,” performed on the MTV Video Music Awards, appeared on “Sex and the City,” was featured at Wigstock and Broadway Bares, and made her Broadway debut alongside Cyndi Lauper and Alan Cumming in the Tony-nominated revival of “The ThreePenny Opera” at Studio 54. EDIE has also been a fixture with the all-gay cruise company ATLANTIS since 2000.
