Martha Graham Cracker’s NYC Debut

By all accounts, the world’s tallest, hairiest drag queen killed in the Big Apple this weekend.

Saturday was a whirlwind of a day for Pig Iron Theater’s Dito van Reigersberg. At 9:30 p.m., the curtain went up at New York’s Public House Theater, where he was starring in Zero Cost House. At 11:20, the show wrapped and he slipped into Martha Graham Cracker gear to perform a 12:15 show at Joe’s Pub. It was a much-anticipated event. The day before, Village Voice named it one of “The Ten Best Concerts in New York This Weekend.” And for Reigersberg, it was a sort-of homecoming. Even though this marked the hairy drag queen’s first performance in the Big Apple, she was actually created here when Reigersberg was living in the Village and attending the Martha Graham School of Dance. So was it a success? Just ask Bill Murray (yes, THE Bill Murray):
