Hydrate Productions and Absolut Vodka present The P-TOWN FALL TOUR! This three-evening series features 3 of Provincetown's most popular drag performers: MISS RICHFIELD 1981 on Saturday, September 29; HEDDA LETTUCE on Saturday, October 13; and CASHETTA on Saturday, October 27. All performances take place at the Lakeshore Theatre, 3175 N. Broadway In Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.
First up on Saturday, September 29, is the unstoppable Miss Richfield 1981! Hailing from Richfield, Minnesota, where she claims, "butter is a spice and gravy is a beverage," Miss Richfield is one part Dame Edna, one part Garrison Keillor, with a big dash of Mary Tyler Moore thrown in the mix. After sold out runs in Provincetown, as well as frequent appearances on Atlantis Cruises, this Minnesota beauty queen returns to Chicago for one night only! Whether through song, dance or educational filmstrip, the tireless Miss Richfield leaves audiences wiser, happier, and smelling fresh. Her premiere Chicago appearance in March 2007 was a sold-out sensation! This new show is destined to be a memorable night that is not to be missed!

Drag comedienne and glamour-puss Hedda Lettuce is running for president and is making a campaign stop in Chicago on Saturday, October 13! "Why make that difficult decision [between a woman and a black man]," Ms. Lettuce asks, "when you can get the best of both worlds in one candidate and vote for me: Hedda Lettuce." With movie and TV appearances including "To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar", NBC's "The People's Court" and a memorable cameo on "Sex and the City" as Samantha's ex-beau turned Bingo Drag impersonator, Hedda Lettuce has quickly become one of America's most recognizable drag performers.

Last, but not least, Cashetta unleashes her inimitable music, comedy and magic revue on Chicago Saturday, October 27!

Her act is original, hysterical and absolutely astounding. Cashetta has been featured on countless television and stage shows and tours internationally with her one "woman" show. Be it card magic, escape or full-scale illusions, Cashetta's act is the only one of its kind!
