Rumor has it that the Hairspary Premiere is in NYC Tonight. The stars are converging: Queen Latifa is on the Today Show, then Kelly & Regis then Letterman; John Travolta is on Letterman tomorrow and Regis & Kelly so they are in town. The whole cast is at the Today Show on Friday.
When I hear about a movie opening on certain dates, I usually do a few things. I try and get info out of my sources, but they don't always give it up, or even know. Then I check the TV Guide and I see who's in town, then I check the various theaters to see where they are not showing a movie during the week. Then I either call the theater or go back to my sources with the information for confirmation. Of course nowadays I could do it the easy way and just ask my photo agency in NYC, but when I didn't have one I had to do some good old fashion detective work.
So if you're in NYC tonight, go to the Ziegfeld at 141 West 54th StreetNew York, NY 10019 about 6PM and catch the cast of Hairspray. Wish I could be there but as you know I have this gig in Philly I am covering. Tonight I too will be seeing a man in drag as I catch the Phila GLBT Film Festival's ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW at the Troc at 9PM. Talking about Queen, here's the one I was hoping to see in Philly this weekend, but she did one event and ran back to her girlfriend, er I mean other committments in NYC.
