Gender Illusionist Charles Busch Destined to Play Club Helsinki Nov. 11 [Berkshire on Stage]

You can call him a drag queen, but he prefers to be called a “gender illusionist”. Playwright, actor, stand-up comedian and devotee of old movies and their memorable women leads, Charles Busch leaves the safety of sophisticated Manhattan for the warm and certain welcome of Club Helsinki in Hudson, New York. One can only wish that someone in the Berkshires had the same adventurous imagination to welcome this brilliant and erudite comedian. This past summer his play, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife was a summer long offering at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox with the brilliant Anette Miller playing Busch’s role of Marjorie to hilariously happy audiences.
