Back by popular demand, ‘An Evening At The Birdcage’, starring Joe Posa and Thirsty Burlington, returns to The Palm on Thursday, March 5th at 9:30 p.m. Hosted by Posa, as comedic icon Joan Rivers, the show is reminiscent of a Las Vegas revue, with a mix of spot-on impersonations of Cher (with live vocals), Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland, and Michael Jackson, all with incredible likenesses and gorgeous costumes. Posa and Burlington were a huge hit last year, as well as earlier this season at The Palm, after completing a very successful sold-out run in Provincetown, MA. during the summer.
Joe Posa, a member of both Actor’s Equity and the Screen Actor’s Guild, has performed in venues in New York clubs such as Don’t Tell Mama, Rose’s Turn, The Blue Angel, The Triad and The Supper Club. Posa is perhaps best-known for his highly regarded impersonation of the late Joan Rivers, having appeared with the comedy genius herself in Houston,Texas, as well as on CBS’s ‘The Morning Show’. As a member of Actor’s Equity, his credits include the International touring company of West Side Story. He also appeared on All My Children as Erica Kane’s double, alongside Susan Lucci.
Thirsty Burlington (aka: Scott Townsend) is regarded as one of the finest celebrity impersonators of the day. Early on, Townsend discovered an instinctive ability to impersonate Cher, including spot-on live vocals, as well as several others including Judy Garland. He takes his audience on an incredible ride of music and comedy, morphing into these iconic celebrities, playing to packed houses throughout the U.S.A. and Mexico. His character, Thirsty Burlington, is also the subject of a soon to be released film ‘Thirsty’ by Margo Pelletier and Lisa Thomas of Thin Edge Films.
‘An Evening At The Birdcage’ plays March 5 – 21 at The Palm. All performances at 9:30 p.m. Please see the link below for a calendar of all shows and online tickets.
