After a lovely dinner with two really sweet friends of Josh, we all headed over to Brite Bar to see the farewell performance of Candis Cayne. I had never heard of her, but I have to admit she was spectacular. Clearly in a line descended from the great Lypsinka, something about Candis is way more modern. If I had to put my finger on it, I would say that there are extra levels of irony and self awareness present in her act. Several times during the performance we were doubled over laughing as she left the bar to go dance and lip sync in the street with traffic zooming past. And at the end she performed an oldie but goodie, reenacting the “why-did-you-adopt-me” bit from Mommie Dearest. It was a campy homo delight.
