ICONS has been bringing a little debauchery back to Times Square every weekend for the past six weeks, and this New Years Eve weekend will be no different as they welcome Bryan Knowlton (Paul from Broadway's A CHORUS LINE) to insanity. ICONS features two queens as they recreate the most "iconic" performances and videos from Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Madonna, Britney Spears, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, and more.
The show stars Ricardo Torres as Madonna, Gaga, Britney, etc and Dennis Williams as Beyonce, Tina, Whitney, Janet, etc and features David Bryant, Bryan Knowlton, Ryan Obermeier, and Ricky Schroeder dancing back-up. Bryan Knowlton is filling in for choreographer Alex Ringler (Broadway's WEST SIDE STORY).
"We're having a blast, the audiences have been insane, and we're constantly changing and adding new numbers," said Tom D'Angora, the co-creator and producer of Icons, in a statement. "Drag acts have long been performed at gay bars in New York, but there's no actual live show for those outside of the gay community. Icons presents an opportunity for tourists visiting New York to experience the pageantry of drag. We want them to be able to leave from their vacation with that 'you won't believe what we did in New York…' story."
"ICONS is the perfect after-Broadway extravaganza," added D'Angora's partner, Michael Duling. "For those who aren't ready to go back to their hotel rooms, they can come to our show and party into the Manhattan night, enjoying the unforgettable moments that turned their favorite singing stars into icons."
ICONS is playing this Thursday and Friday at 10:45pm at The Snapple Theater Center located at 1627 Broadway (at 50th St.). Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.com or by calling (212) 921-7862. Starting in January ICONS will play every Saturday night at 10:45pm.
