“Drag of Ages” — Many of South Florida’s most famous drag queens will perform 10 p.m. Sunday, March 22, at Eighth Street and Ocean Drive to celebrate Miami Beach’s Centennial.
Here’s the news release:
Superstar of stage & screen Elaine Lancaster will command the huge stage for the hour along with legends in the world of Miami Beach but mainly South Florida world of drag.
Witness performances, monologues, dancing, singing and an overall celebration for the city that has extended so much for so many. Miami Beach, known as the American Riviera, has provided an extraordinarily unique path for less than 'conventional' entertainer to flourish and grow where it might have been impossible in other cities in the United States.
