Child care centre un-invites drag queen

blogger-image--501044724Philadelphia drag queen Martha Graham Cracker has an amazing voice with a personality to boot. The on-stage alter-ego of theatre performer Dito Van Reigersberg, Cracker / Reigersberg runs her own monthly cabaret, a self-described “dazzling and bizarre assemblage of musicians, actors, barflies, three legged chickens, (and) Hindu fakirs.” She’s performed for a variety of audiences, and recently received her first invitation to do a Dr. Seuss reading for kids at New Jersey child care centre in celebration of National Read Across America Day. Graham Cracker accepted the invite, and then, the centre un-invited her (if there’s any doubt, because she’s a drag queen). It seems as though the higher-ups at the child care centre did not approve of the original invitation, sent by the centre’s supervisor.
