She's been on Broadway, threatened by Star Jones, and tossed in jail. Now drag star Flotilla DeBarge -- last seen on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera with Alan Cumming and Cyndi Lauper -- brings her newest solo show Flotilla DeBarge: Freshly Released -- Black, Blessed & Free
In September 2006, DeBarge was arrested for assault with a high-heeled shoe in the West Village nightclub APT in self defense. Following in the footsteps of Martha Stewart, Lil' Kim and Paris Hilton, she was sentenced to serve jail time. In Flotilla DeBarge: Freshly Released -- Black, Blessed & Free the controversial drag star is back on stage and ready to set the record straight. "It certainly wasn't OZ, honey. There was no Chris Meloni in sight," notes the drag legend who has been nicknamed The Notorious F.L.O.
In this autobiographical musical essay (which includes versions of "Jailhouse Rock" and "The Cell Block Tango"), DeBarge dishes up her thoughts on the penal system, black injustice and lessons learned from a life hanging out in NYC's most glittery nightclubs and bars... to suddenly living life behind bars. Flotilla DeBarge: Freshly Released -- Black, Blessed & Free proves that this lady is black and better than ever!
