If you think Anton Chekov's Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead is a madcap mash-up of the Russian realist drama with George Romero-style zombie horror, you would be gloriously (gory-iously?) correct. From the genre-bending brain of Troy Heard, the celebrated theater director (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), comes this new play in which the worlds of czarist Russia and The Walking Dead collide. Madame Ranevskaya has returned to her ancestral manor following yet another whirlwind farewell tour, only to find things turned upside down. Instead of marrying off her nubile daughter Masha to the local scholar, she's boarding up windows and grabbing pistols to ward off an onslaught of resurrected serfs. The Onyx Theatre presents this world premiere supported by grants from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. Learn More

This was a very fun evening. Alan established a great rapport with the audience and was very good natured. There were 7 of us in our group, and we all had a very good time. I personally loved how quickly and efficiently changed his wigs and costumes. Compared to other theater options in Vegas, this was definitely a great deal for the great time we all had.

One man as 32 women in 20 songs and only 85 minutes!
Direct from a highly successful three-month off-Broadway run, Alan Palmer brings the acclaimed one-man musical fun fest The Fabulous Divas of Broadway to the Onyx Theatre!
Starring and Created by Alan Palmer
What to do when you’re a male musical theater performer with a big belting voice and an affinity for Broadway’s greatest leading ladies? Since Broadway shows aren’t casting men in traditional women’s roles – if you’re resourceful, you create your own one-man “woman” musical! On this unique, comic journey, actor/singer/storyteller Alan Palmer offers backstage tales of his life in “the business” while portraying larger-than-life stars as the show’s guides.
Alan Palmer’s Fabulous Divas of Broadway is a fast-paced musical journey of one man’s love of the Theater and the amazing ladies that inspired him along the way. In rapid succession – and a non-stop turnover of gorgeous costumes – he brings to life such legends as Ethel Merman, Carol Channing, Liza Minnelli, Angela Lansbury, Julie Andrews, Judy Garland and Chita Rivera and such Tony-winning stars of today as Christine Ebersole, Patti LuPone, Sutton Foster and Kristin Chenoweth, all while performing songs in each lady’s singular style.
Beyond mimicry, beyond drag, Alan Palmer's Fabulous Divas Of Broadway is both reverent and irreverent. A loving and hysterical tribute to the Prima Performers of Broadway, it's a must for all lovers of musical theater!
