Charles Busch fans are in for a treat as the master returns to Primary Stages with his latest work The Tribute Artist. This tale of an aging female impersonator who attempts to make millions off a friend's death is filled with Busch's signature blend of quick-witted banter and gender-bending hijinks.
The Tribute Artist features Mr. Busch as an out-of-work female impersonator who, when his elderly landlady dies in her sleep, takes on her identity in order to hang on to her valuable Greenwich Village townhouse. This "perfect" plan goes awry and leads to a wild path of twists and reversals plotted by an eccentric rogues gallery of outrageous schemers.
The cast features Mary Bacon, Charles Busch, Julie Halston, Cynthia Harris, Keira Keeley, and Jonathan Walker.
