  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Arias With a Twist 2011

    Glorifying the American, Uh, Alien

    Ben Brantley

    September 18, 2011: The revival on Broadway of “Follies,” a eulogy to the age of Ziegfeld, has refocused New Yorkers’ thoughts on a long-vanished star-spangled chapter in showbiz. That was the age when long-limbed beauties were goddesses, and stages were spectacle-filled altars to their, er, talents. Such a sensibility is as dead as the Brooklyn Dodgers, of course, though you can still catch some arch nods to it in the mega-concerts of mega-pop stars like Lady Gaga.

    Arias with a Twist

    Aubry D'Arminio

    September 18, 2011: Joey Arias is a statuesque, raven-haired legend of the New York drag scene who croons like Billie Holiday and used to emcee for Cirque Du Soliel. Basil Twist is an award-winning puppeteer who once staged an all-puppet Petrushka at Lincoln Center and consulted on the third Harry Potter film.
