After an exceptional run in Portland, Oregon we are looking to take the show to other cities. We’re currently working on Philly, Boston, Nashville and Washington D.C. If you have any leads on these or other cities, please email BeaArthurAstralDame@gmail.com. We are typically looking at smaller venues, 100 seats or less, that have a piano (though track capabilities are a possibility), a simple light and sound plot, two mics and a technician.

Beatrice Arthur: Astral Dame joined Life Vest inside on Sunday November 8th for the worldwide flashmob in Times Square called Dance for Kindness. She danced her heart out and spread love and cheer all across NYC with her bosom buddies Anthony Giorgio (DFK choreographer), Orly Wahba (DFK founder) and Ophelia (NYC chanteuse). And they were all joined by The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb who did a fantastic piece this morning on NBC. It was a fantastic day for all.
Our bosom buddies down at The Duplex made a delicious recording of our show on that historic Marriage Equality Day on June 26th. And now, that historic recording can be YOURS! If you want a real live compact disc, I will gladly mail you one, or if you’ve moved into the here and now, I can send you a digital download. Either endeavor will cost you $10 which you can send via PayPal or Venmo.
Love you all, my Bea Vitamins, and I’ll see you on 8/26 at The Laurie Beechman in NYC!
