Divine Comedy


At the old Waverly Theater
on Sixth Avenue, now
known as Clearview’s Waverly Cinema, the Independent
Film Channel’s midnight
premiere of In Bad
(a documentary about
John Waters) was further
enlivened by the Divine look-alike contest held directly
after the screening— at 2 a.m. With prizes that
included season passes to
the movies (okay, anything at Clearview’s Waverly
Cinema . . . ), gift certificates from Patricia Field, and
comp dinners at Lips, how
could a girl resist
squeezing herself into a
sequined gown and gorging
on a plate of poop?
