‘An Evening At The Birdcage’ starring Joe Posa and Thirsty Burlington, returns to The Palm in Puerto Vallarta on Sunday, January 4th at 9:30 p.m. With incredible voices and likenesses, Posa and Burlington impersonate celebrities Joan Rivers, Cher, Judy Garland, Michael Jackson, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand with uncanny precision. They were at huge hit at The Palm last season, and they just completed a very successful sold-out run in Provincetown, MA.
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 though for his highly respectful 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.
Similarly, Thirsty Burlington is regarded as one of the finest celebrity impersonators of the day. From his signature Cher with ALL LIVE VOCALS and Judy Garland, Thirsty takes his audience on an incredible ride of music and comedy, morphing into the iconic celebrities. Early on, Townsend discovered an instinctive ability to impersonate Cher, “Better than Cher does Cher”, and in a career that now spans over 20 years, has played to packed houses throughout the U.S.A. and Mexico. 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 January 4 – 17 at The Palm.
