Video: Martha Graham Cracker Takes a Tumble on the Escalator

An escalator at the Convention Center tries to eat Philly's most delicious drag cabaret diva.

Tons of LGBTQers and straight allies made it out to G Philly’s LGBTQ party at the Philadelphia Flower Show tonight. Drinks were flowing, gay chats were had and ActionAIDS was there selling Mondo Guerra-designed T-shirts to benefit Dining Out For Life. The highlight of the evening, though, was the performance by Martha Graham Cracker. Decked in slutty queen’s garb, the cabaret diva serenaded the crowd with four songs. In one number, she took to the down escalator for a funny, walk-in-place-and-sing bit, but it didn’t quite turn out the way she anticipated — or did it? Check the video above to see the escalator almost gobble up Miss Cracker alive, then come back tomorrow for more photos and info about the event.
