When Joey Married Bobby

I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of a fabulous new off-Broadway comedy called "When Joey Married Bobby" that starred the legendary Drag Icon Lady Bunny as Charity Divine, a minister's wife, and the gorgeous former Detroit Tiger Pitcher Matt Pender as Joey. I covered the show as a correspondent for the TV series, Under the Pink Carpet. The play also features Tina McKissik as a Southern Matriarch frantically trying to plan a wedding, and a Christmas Pageant while tying to win a coveted "Christian of the Year Award." I also loved the performance of Joey's Best Man, William Yoder. I had a wonderful time at the celebrity studded premiere gala mingling with many of my friends including Frank DeCaro (Sirius Out Q Radio), original Village People Cowboy Randy Jones, Bob Montgomery (Homocomicus), recording artist Athena Reich, Steven Schulman (SaSi PR), Tony Sawciki (Under the Pink Carpet), Mel Reyes, Jed Ryan ( others. After the premiere, I headed down to Baracuda lounge with Jed Ryan for an impromptu performance.
