THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) hosts its first "New York's Next Top Drag Queen Contest." The six-week affair, running five Mondays from April 1st to May 6th (no show on April 8th), will pit eight pre-selected drag queen artists who will be judged not by looks alone but by how well they sing and entertain. Hosted by Hedda Lettuce, the highly competitive contest will feature a parade of treats for the eyes, special guests, surprise guest judges and a mystery judge whose identity will hopefully be revealed at the contest's finale. Competing will be these promising entertainers, all of whom have been rigorously pre-screened: Goldie Fische (a.k.a. Gerry Mastrolia); Titania Steele (a.k.a. Danny Marr); Bootsie Lafaris (a.k.a. Justin Keller); Ninna Rubi (a.k.a. Ricky Reyes); Millie Grams (a.k.a. Sam Given); Reverend Yolanda (a.k.a. Roger Mapes); Sonja Brooks (a.k.a. Ben Christopher Marshell); and Didi Panache (a.k.a. Douglas McGeouch). For details and a schedule of performances, seehttp://www.metropolitanroom.com There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
