Cause Celeb! is a cult hit, downtown alternative cabaret series featuring interpretive readings of celebrity autobiographies. Created by Nancy Balbirer and Charlotte Booker, each themed evening draws from the most sensational (and often salacious) passages of starry tomes, to hilariously dramatic effect. The theme for the November 27 performance is Cause Celeb!: Viva Las Divas! and includes: Joan Rivers as Joan Collins from Past Imperfect Charles Busch as Joan Crawford from My Way Of Life Julie Halston as Nancy Reagan from My Turn Marylouise Burke as Diana Ross from Secrets of a Sparrow Charlotte Booker as Hedy Lamarr from My Life as a Woman Michael Musto as Esther Williams from The Million Dollar Mermaid Nancy Balbirer as Elizabeth Ashley from Actress: Postcards From The Road Cause Celeb! is a benefit for The Empire State Pride Agenda, New York's statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights and advocacy organization.
