Hallelujah -- Miami Beach is about to get more fabulous.
The Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club gave lucky local invitees a taste of their Chicago offerings, which include a cast of storied female impersonators owning the stage and dozens of martinis to sip while they werk.
The funny, fierce performances last night only touch on what's to come over the next six months, when Kit Kat will outfit the Jackie Gleason Theater at the Fillmore with a different design and line-up every show, including a Christmas spectacular in December sure to put the gay in your holiday.
"Bette Midler" read the crowd to filth, "J.Lo" and her ass wouldn't quit, and "Katy Perry" had all the doll-like stiffness of her real-life counterpart.
For drag show enthusiasts looking for a more sophisticated way to enjoy the art form (hey, no one's knocking those sweaty floor shows), the Kit Kat install will feature up-close seating, bites, and 25 selections of martinis to quench your thirst.
Kit Kat Divas Live will be at The Gleason Room monthly, for six months, starting in November. Shows run from Thursday through Sunday (one each), and two on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets are on sale now.
In addition to the costumes and dance-pop soundtrack of the night, Kit Kat laid the sexy on thick, with ripped up male dancers in jeggings and masks (why not?) and some bedazzled nudity to close the show. Body was the main dish served.
