Meet the All Stars…
We have followed the following Boston queens for the past five years!
Host of All Star Mondays at Machine on Monday nights. Lili was classically trained and studied at the Boston Conservatory. She was casted in La Cage Aux Folles alongside Kelsey Grammar. Lili became such a success that she received a full stand up act during her national tour with George Hamilton.
Rainbow Frite has been haunting a variety of performance venues since 1999. She has worked in NYC and Boston venues including cabarets, equity theatre houses, and nightclubs. As a trained musical theater performer, she takes delight in singing live and twisting beloved musical theatre torch songs to fit a dark yet bubble gum aesthetic. Her years in NYC as a cabaret performer and lead wig stylist for the infamous Patricia Field lead her to be branded as the shock performance artist within the “club kid” clique: “the technicolor goddess of trash.” Since that time, her performance style and drag angst has matured in to a more subtle yet true to self manifestation. She has recently been part of the American Repertory Theater company in Lily’s Revenge and The Donkey Show. You can see her every week at Machine Nightclub at All Star Mondays and Karaoke at Jacques Cabaret on Tuesdays.
Anaol is a star in the making. At only 22, she is the youngest queen featured in All Stars. Anaol has a large online fanbase and for a good reason! She is incredibly savvy for such a young age and has multiple spokesmodel deals, including with Rockstar Wigs.
Dee Dee de Ray always puts on a show! With her dancing background, this showgirl razzles and dazzles on stage. Dee Dee is an entertainer at Jacque’s Cabaret, The A-List, and MoonMaxx Productions.
Fena Barbitall is a drag legend in Boston. She started performing in the early 2000s and quickly became a staple in the club world. She hosts Hot Mess Sundays and performs at Jacques and Machine.
Emphysema Menthol One-Hundreds
Emphysema Menthol One-Hundreds is a Boston based drag performer whose made huge strides in her two short years of performing. Her elaborate concepts and costumes always serve to portray a character, elicit reaction, and inspire, often pushing the boundaries of what can be used to adorn the human body. From gigantic gowns lit up with lights and fans, to thrashing around naked in a pool of mud like a little piggy, nothing is off limits, nothing is “too much.” Disturbing, satyrical, gorgeous, and most of all deadly, Emphysema IS A DISEASE, not a mere drag queen…
Violencia Exclamation Point
Violencia Exclamation Point is a kooky spooky queen who has been in the biz for about 6 years now. She has accomplished a lot in that time because of her strange looks and fun attitude drawing inspiration from everything. “Art is all around you and is what you make of it – BE WEIRD.” You can catch her at Jacques Cabaret every first Monday for #NOFILTER, All Star Mondays for the early show, Wednesdays at Machine for Whatever Wednesdays, Fridays at Club Paradym in NH, Saturdays at Pubb 47 Central for LOOSE, and Sundays at Candibar.
Performing in Boston since the 90s, Kris Knievel is a staple in the drag community. She is the show director at Jacques Cabaret and was named as one of the most important people in Boston Nightlife by Boston Magazine.
