New Show ‘Aging Disgracefully’ (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, August 11, 2023

This week I talked with Drag Diva Randy Roberts about performing his new show “Aging Dis-Gracefully” currently at the Post Office Cafe & Cabaret now through August 29th in Provincetown, MA. I caught his fabulous new show last week & was thoroughly entertained with his theme of divas who refuse to grow old gracefully including impeccable performances from Cher, Bette Midler & more. However, what makes Roberts show so outstanding is how he brings his own voice to the party. This is not a lip sync show but a Virtuoso performing in drag. Then when he concluded the show performing “The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera in his own persona I was blown away especially thinking about the controversy all drag artists are facing in this country with the politicizing of their art. In Key West, Florida where Randy has performed at the La Te Da Cabaret on Duval Street for 25 years they no longer allow anyone under 18 years old to attend even though Randy’s show is totally appropriate for all ages. In “Aging Dis-Gracefully” he does address Florida being ground zero with the current culture wars specifically drag artists under attack. Yet Roberts manages to address the issue flawlessly with a tribute to Governor DeSantis in a parody entitled “He’s DeSantis” to the song “It's De-Lovely” & a moving rendition of the LGBTQ power anthem “Color Out Of Colorado.” I talked to Randy about his inspiration for his new show “Aging Dis-Gracefully” & his spin on our LGBTQ on our LGBTQ issues.
