'Hurricane Bianca' Makes Landfall


New Orleans has no shortage of drag royalty, but Bianca Del Rio (nee Roy Haylock) is the queen of queens, the Daenerys  Targaryen of the NOLA scene. Del Rio made a national name for herself after wining Season 6 winner of “Rupaul's Drag Race.” On Friday (6.03), she is releasing a feature film, “Hurricane Bianca.”


The Cradle Will Rock

Part II: The Show Must Go On



In 1937, the Great Depression raged and unions began to rise. Amdist an atmosphere of anxiety and unrest, The Cradle Will Rock was rehearsed. Part I of this series expains that background. In this installment, we pick up after the Memorial Day Massacre.

When a telegram from Washington came on June 11, the company assumed their fears had come true. Bureaucrats ordered that the show - and all other openings for Federal Theatre Project performances - be postponed until the new fiscal year. The WPA hired guards to lock the doors of the Maxine Elliott Theatre on 39th street. Costume, props, and Orson Welles’ scenery were also guarded. Cradle’s opening had been set for June 16, and the company was livid.
