New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2010
The general public will pay $15 per person to enjoy the Annual Mae West Birthday Tribute -- but virgins (who are over 21 years of age) will be admitted free -- when The Empress of Sex and The Last of the Red Hot Mamas entertain on Saturday night, August 14th, 2010 in midtown Manhattan.
There will be a mind reader -- -- Garside the Great, a purity detective imported from Coney Island -- -- at the door to determine who is naughty and who is "snow white." Mae West once said, "I was snow white but I drifted."
In honor of Mae's upcoming birthday, both the pure and the (ahem) "experienced" are welcome to enjoy the music once performed by Mae West, Empress of Sex, and Sophie Tucker, The Last of The Red Hot Mamas. Join us for a shimmy-long night of good songs, swell jokes, jaw-dropping raffle prizes, and more.
And the live entertainment will ignite you and delight you on Saturday August 14th, 2010 when two broads head back to Broadway -- -- Sophie Tucker along with Mae West.
Continuing her custom of commemorating the birthday of Mae West, playwright LindaAnn Loschiavo (who wrote "Courting Mae West: Sex, Censorship, and Secrets") has a most exciting late-night treat in store this year: The Gaudy Girls, two talented beauties who perform the best-loved songs made famous by Sophie Tucker and Mae West. As part of their repertoire, the ladies will offer a tribute to New York-based composers and lyricists who created the hits "Frankie & Johnny," "My Old Flame," "Red Hot Mama," "My Yiddishe Momme," "Everybody Shimmies Now," "Baby, It's Cold Outside," and many more.
