Overheard in Orlando: TheBroadwayWorld.com winners and “stolen” talent

And the Winners are …
TheBroadWayWorld.com results are in, and several LGBT and LGBT friendly performers were on the top of the list as the winners. Fuck me gently with a chainsaw! The multi-talented, Blue Star for the Best Choreography (Professional) for the popular Heathers: the Musical. Kenny Howard also won best Direction of a Musical (Professional) for Heathers: the Musical – Lick it up, baby. Lick it up! Heathers: the Musical was based on the black comedy, teen-angst ridden film from the ‘80s that starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. Kenny also won Best Direction of a Play (Professional) for The Flick – both shows were performed at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and were locally produced.

Baring it all!
It’s been recently announced that one of the most risqué annual art exhibits has found a new home. Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is a time for lovers, but even if you’re single, you’d be certainly guaranteed to get an eyeful of the artistic expressions of the nude form. Nude Nite returns, and it will be hosted Artegon Marketplace, home of various shops featuring local artisans, so this certainly feels like a great fit. Located on the north end of I-Drive, the new location not only offers a leak proof roof, but also bountiful and secure parking. (Not commonly found in previous Nude Nites). If you would like to participate, there is still a call for live artists as well. Nude Nite Orlando, will run from February 11-13; tickets are on sale now and often sell out! There’s also a Nude Nite Tampa coming in March.

I-Drive is I-Mine?
Funky Monkey’s Eddie Nickell went on a self-proclaimed Facebook rant complaining about the new clubs and he has specified the ones on I-Drive attempting to steal his cast. He claims they’re using the names and likenesses of the performers he’s worked so hard to develop. Presently, the only other drag show on the tourist strip will be at Revere. Mango’s Tropical Café, the South Beach hot spot, just opened a massive complex on International Drive in Orlando. The location features all the amazing entertainment the South Beach location offers but in a larger scale. No word if Eddie Nickell was referring to Mango’s, as its performers also have the appearance of showgirls. Confusing!
