“Who should play the character of Martha in the movie about my life?” Martha Graham Cracker asks her Facebook followers. Although the first commenter suggested Jon Hamm, we have a feeling that Dito van Reigersberg (a/k/a Martha Graham Cracker) is the only man up for the job. Reigersberg has been hailed as the “world’s tallest and hairiest drag queen” and is also the co-founder of Philadelphia’s Obie-winning Pig Iron Theatre Company. Tonight, Reigersberg and a four-piece band perform mash-ups of everything from Prince to Judy Garland to Mötley Crüe. There’s no pigeonholing this lady.
