Playwright and world-famous female impersonator Charles Busch and singer-musician Tom Judson performed to a capacity audience Sunday night at The Cabaret South Beach.

Edison Farrow’s nightclub was packed with guests from throughout South Florida, who came for An Evening with Charles Busch.

“I’m at a very interesting place in my life and, therefore, my career. I’m just really enjoying being unguarded and being for real,” says the Tony-nominated playwright. “It’s a bit of a challenge when you’re in drag, because drag can be seen as a mask or a kind of masquerade. And yet for some reason, since I’ve been doing it for over 30 years, I’m able to actually be myself — at the same time look like a very glamorous lady.”
