New York’s finest ladies, precocious Drag Queens Sherry Vine and Joey Arias, chat about their newest show, how their friendship began, their love for Montreal and how to get started in the biz of being fabulous.
If you have ever typed “Lady Gaga” and “parody” into any search engine, you most likely have seen the brilliant work of Sherry Vine. But Miss Vine doesn’t stop with Gaga, on her YouTube channel she’s reinvented the songs of Madonna, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and more. She’s the queen of fabulous AND satire.
If you ever sat in amazement in the audience of Cirque du Soleil‘s riveting and sensual show Zoomanity, then you’ve most certainly heard the vocal wonderment of Joey Arias. Known to channel the spirit of Billy Holiday, Ms. Arias has a vibrato that hypnotically seduces, and then breaks our hearts with an unexpected gentleness.
These two gals certainly know how to entertain. So it was with great honor and pleasure that I caught up with them at Cabaret Mado before their big Montreal show.
Insider Info: Joey Arias will be returning to Montreal for Divers/Cité at the end of July. Stay tuned for more details!
