Spotlight: Scottish Drag Queen, Charles Dickens, and Hello Dolly

Play Audio

Every Friday afternoon, Mark Baratelli, publisher of The Daily City, shares his picks for can’t-miss weekend events in Central Florida.

A performer from Scotland named Mike Delamont flies into Orlando every few months and performs his show, God is a Scottish Drag Queen. He was introduced to local audiences as part of the Orlando Fringe years ago and has apparently built up a gay bar-sized audience. In his latest show, Delamont, dressed in a women’s power suit and sensible pumps skewers everything from Brussel sprouts to the three wise men. God Is A Scottish Drag Queen: the Christmas Special is tonight and Saturday at 8 at Savoy in Ivanhoe Village.

The stage musical comedy “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” based on an unfinished Charles Dickens novel and set in Victorian England, tries to solve the murder of the young and charming Edwin Drood. It features local singer actor legend Meghan Moroney, with her large glorious voice and stage presence. She’s is a force and may she and this  interactive comedy mystery musical be with you this weekend Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 2:30 at Mad Cow Theatre in downtown Orlando.

And finally, Broadway legend Betty Buckley is in town staring in the national tour of Hello Dolly. The show is a candy-colored love note to yesteryear when women wore skirts and boots and men wore shirts and boots. Hello? Dolly? The show and Betty Buckley take the stage Saturday at 2 and 8 and Sunday at 1 at the Dr Phillips Performing Arts Center.
