Wow! Joey was on f-ing FIRE! He looked fabulous, he sounded amazing and the interaction with the crowd was hilarious!
I haven't seen him perform live before- just on shows and such- but it seems that his time with Zumanity polished this already well crafted diamond of a performer into a full blown superstar.
Bravo, Joey! BRAVO!
Quotes & Highlights
- “To say [Arias] left victorious would be something of an understatement… the only thing strange about this particular fruit is just how darn brilliant he really is.” --Seattle Gay News
- Arias's show is a two-time Los Angeles Times “Critic’s Choice” and “Pick of the Week.”
A dear friend’s 80 year old mother sums it up best... "I never thought I would live to see Billie Holiday perform live!"
Legendary underground entertainer turned international cabaret sensation Joey Arias returns to Seattle’s historic Triple Door theatre for an evening of signature song and banter, accompanied by his longtime pianist and creative co-conspirator, Eliot Douglass.
Fresh from a five-year run as emcee/”Mistress of Seduction” for Zumanity: the Sultry Side of Cirque de Soleil, a role created expressly for him, Arias is the 2009 recipient of GLAAD’s “Off Off Broadway” Award for Arias With a Twist, an intimate “cabinet of curiosities” melding Arias’ legendary voice with puppeteer Basil Twist’s lavish, ecstatic visual creations.
Outrageous and avant-garde, Joey’s one-of-kind voice and thoroughly modern take on the music of Ms. Holiday continues to bend minds, winning over music and theatre lovers all across the planet. He has been featured at such diverse spaces as NYC’s hallowed Carnegie Hall and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and has collaborated with countless influential artists, including David Bowie and the late Klaus Nomi.
