Original cast member Tora Dress, who has been at Cheng's since year one is curating much of the evening. The legendary drag dinner show has so many claims to fame that it is hard to count them all. Lucky Cheng's launched the careers of notable actors Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), Miss Understood (To Wong Foo…, Project Runway) & Jamie Clayton (Sense8). Some of the most popular contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race which films it’s season finales at Stage 48 got their start or are still performing at Lucky Cheng's including Bob the Drag Queen, Thorgy Thor, Vivacious, Ongina, Yuhua Hamasaki, & more. A little known fact is that scenes from the first episode of Sex & the City were shot at Lucky Cheng's. Lucky Cheng’s was founded by legendary restaurateur Hayne Suthon who passed away from breast cancer in 2014. Suthon founded Cheng’s with MTV Producer & partner Robert Jason. Their daughter Josephine Jason, Lucky Cheng’s House DJ is one of the co-owners of Lucky Cheng’s & proceeds from this evening will go to support the Tutu Project, a non-profit that provides funding for expenses not covered by insurance for breast cancer patients.
