Justin Vivian Bond, who hails from Hagerstown, Md., will celebrate two decades living in New York City in Happy Tranniversary!
The show, featuring musical direction by Thomas Bartlett, takes place June 10 at (Le) Poisson Rouge in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.
"Join Mx Justin Vivian Bond and friends in celebration of 20 of the most exuberant years of subversive glamour and performance this city has ever known," reads an online invitation. "Expect extreme performance, shocking guests and a bit of 'gentle persuasion' — whatever that means! "
Bond, a self-proclaimed "trans-fabulous performance-activist," earned international acclaim as sloshed septuagenarian lounge singer Kiki Durane of the Tony-nominated duo Kiki & Herb. The Shortbus star has also penned a memoir, Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels, and released a solo album, Dendrophile.
The performer most recently appeared on stage in The Drift, an original piece based on The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone, a 1950 novella by Tennessee Williams.
