About this show

"Think of her as Donna Reed's drag queen doppelganger, or Florence Henderson with a Y chromosome." -- Columbus Alive "Dispensing useful household hints with a mellifluous deadpan, the latter-day Doris Day has grown into a national cable-cult fixation." -- LA Times "a hoot... essential viewing" -- Entertainment Weekly Style Network show hostess and drag celebrity Brini Maxwell presents her 3rd annual live holiday show, A Very Brini Christmas, for one night only. A meet-and-greet session with Brini follows the performance. This heartwarming evening features music, banter and helpful holiday planning tips from Brini Maxwell. It includes a variety of standards including "Everybody's Waiting for the Man With the Bag," "Christmas Time is Here," and Brini's signature song "Entertaining at Home." Accompanying Maxwell during this intimate night of chat and song is the GLAMA Award nominee The David Downing Trio. This melodious blend of piano, bass & drum, with the occasional saxophone, was called "rare and satisfying... shades of Mel Torme's swinging mixed with Chet Baker's laid back cool sound" by Out Magazine. Since 1998, Brini Maxwell has hosted The Brini Maxwell Show, an urban home style show featuring helpful household hints, fabulous new recipes, and lessons in social etiquette -- all with a decidedly 1960s flair. She lives in a hip, retro-decorated apartment, sports a fabulously kitschy wardrobe and espouses how-to's on everything from cooking and cocktails to DIY gifts and thrift shopping. She's got style, she's got flare... she's got a set of vintage mixing bowls that will be the envy of every flea-market shopper. Appropriate For Ages: 18 and up
