DIRECT FROM HER 4000TH SHOW 
ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP

DRAG SENSATION    EDIE!

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

THURSDAY, AUGUST 18th

@ DAVENPORTS PIANO BAR & CABARET

On a break from her ten-show-per-week schedule as the emcee of one of Las Vegas’ hottest shows, drag sensation EDIE brings her solo show to Davenports for one night only!

EDIE just celebrated her 4000th show as the Mistress of Sensuality in Cirque du Soleil’s ZUMANITY. After 8 years in the role, the gender-bending entertainer has performed for more than 3 million people.

On August 18, the leggy showgirl will sing and dance her way through a high octane hour of original songs and standards all with her signature 60s go-go style. Add her famous high-kickin choreography, stories from her new life in Sin City, and her witty, off-the-cuff audience banter and you have the reason the San Francisco Chronicle “strongly advises seeing the incredible EDIE whose talent and legs go on forever.”

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 will perform her solo show at DAVENPORTS PIANO BAR & CABARET (1383 N. Milwaukee Ave.) Thursday, August 18th at 8PM. Tickets may be purchased at reservations.davenportspianobar.com
