Le Bal : Drag Redefined

The beautifully restored Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles presented “Le Bal”; a theatrical extravaganza created by co-producers Cesar Hawas and Carly Usdin who bonded over their love of Drag.

An internationally renowned lineup hosted by Candis Cayne, including “RuPaul’s Drag Race” favorites Manila Luzon & Thorgy Thor, plus the “Queen of Orlando” Darcel Stevens, double-plus “The World’s Biggest Bitch” Jackie Beat, and YouTube Sensation Brendan Jordan graced the stage in this third installment of Le Bal, which finally made its way from Orlando to Los Angles. The flawless production not only demonstrated the fortitude of its creators in the wake of the Orlando shooting, but speaks volumes of the resilience of the Orlando LGBTQ community as a whole.

Le Bal is an exquisitely crafted production that successfully elevates Drag beyond simple entertainment and redefines this wonderful art form.
