June is PRIDE month — and this year marks the 50th Anniversary of the important and famous Stonewall Riots.
Bedford Playhouse is celebrating with a one-time-only special screening of “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar” featuring a pre-party with special guests — Connecticut’s Queen of Mean, Kiki Lucia and her cohort Miss Frank! Both will mingle, mix, sass and perform with guests at a pre-party celebration at Bambi’s Bar in the Playhouse Cafe.
Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo and Wesley Snipes star in this hilarious adventure about three transvestites (sic) on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime. On their way to Hollywood for a drag queen beauty pageant, Vida (Swayze), Chi Chi (Leguizamo) and Noxeema (Snipes) get stranded in the tiny Midwestern town of Snydersville. Determined to make the best of a bad situation, the “girls” set out to repair the broken hearts, broken dreams and broken nails of the small-town residents during one wildly outrageous weekend.
