LIVING ON THE EDGE
Though hes torn up downtown drag stages since the 80s, Joey Ariass more tangible claim to fame is his recent six-year run in the relatively tame Zumanity, Cirque du Soleils attempt at sexing up their high- flying,body-contorting Vegas presence. Arias basically played himself, a gender-bending MC who slyly coaxed Midwestern retirees to lose their shit during the penultimate orgy scene. It was edgy for Vegas, but nothing you wouldnt have already seen in a New York club. Now hes back home with a new show titled Arias With a Twistin which the twist is none other than the prolific puppeteer and director Basil Twist, whos sure to add plenty of his own magic to the drag high-artistry that Arias is truly capable of.
