PRIDE!!! It was an honor to announce the Seattle Gay Pride Parade this year with my winglady Cherry Sur Bete from the House of Lady Dude. We came we saw, we made a lot of shit up on the fly. Channeling DIVINE was a lifelong dream I don’t know I deeply held until I got into the costume and put on those lips. Proud of my city and thankful to be part of a community I love.
Stoked to be part of this week’s Art Zone on the T.V.! Thanks Nancy Guppy for so much love.
I recorded a video diary from my one-woman show, Is This Real Life? (I am about at minute 5 on the show)
The show also includes a trip back in time with longtime band manager and musician Danny Bland who survived to write a novel that captures the gritty vibe of Seattle`s early `90s music scene. Plus, Book-It`s Myra Platt, SAM Director Kimerly Rorschach, Electronica group Purr Gato and Intiman`s Andrew Russell. CHECK IT OUT!
Love me some Nancy Guppy. Here is an interview she did with me about my new show, “Is This Real Life?”
Best known for her powerful pipes (which she’s employed playing a wicked stepsister in the musical Cinderella, singing the national anthem before Seahawks games and in many other roles), Sarah Rudinoff also possesses major acting chops and an electrifying stage presence (Torso at Theater Off Jackson; The Clay Duke at On the Boards).
After 13 weeks- RuPaul’s Drag Race has come to an end. Oh my goddesses that was fun and a whole lot of eyelash glue. Thank you Seattle for coming out every Monday to watch the show with me and Season 6’s Miss Congeniality BenDeLaCreme. We gabbed our faces off. #poocorner #shadyapes #interpretate. I got to meet so many young people who wondered who the hell this old broad in sparkles was- I tried to keep it classy and dirt filled. MWAH!

I am very excited to share an excerpt from a new solo show I have been working on. “Is This Real Life?” will be at NW New Works Festival at On the Boards. David Bennett is directing, Wade Madsen is my movement guru, Robert Aguilar is designing lights and Evan Mosher is making sound. Tickets and info here. See you there in “real” time.
Honored to be an announcer at this year’s 40th Pride Parade celebration. I will be holding down the 4th & Bell stage with Cherry Sur Bete. Let the costume designing begin! SEATTLE PRIDE
Stopped by Art Zone to sing and promote House of the Unholy and Nancy Guppy’s most wonderful producer Sheila Mullen sent me the story they did on us creating THESE STREETS. It ends with a line I won’t live down anytime soon, “I love a good cake. Don’t knock cake!”
Hunty! You know I’m a huge fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race. After our beloved Seattle sweetheart Jinkx Monsoon won last season our city was proud as two papas. I have the honor of hosting a weekly viewing party with Season 6 Star Ben De La Creme! Come for scintillating backstage stories, special guests and live performances. This year, the party will be at Century Ballroom with a special menu from Tin Table if you want to get there early. And WHAT?! All info here
NEUMO’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY
Thrilled to be playing tonight at NEUMO’S for part of their 20th Anniversary weeklong celebration. We are opening for GOODNESS for a sold out show. Last night we rehearsed with all of our guest musicians including Lisa Orth (66 Saints), Vanessa Veselka (Bell) and Carrie Akre (Goodness/Hammerbox). It got super loud in Ron Nine’s (Love Battery) basement and seeing Hollis (Flavr Blue, Macklemore) singing with Carrie was incredible. We can’t wait for tonight. I will post more pics later. Here’s a great article in The Stranger about the events. http://bit.ly/1aR0jA0
