By: Nicole Lashomb/Editor-in-ChiefIt’s no surprise that Mohegan Sun is the host of many community events. With its lavish accommodations, breathless architecture, boundless entertainment and theaters to house any kind of performance, it makes the perfect venue for just about any occasion.
Recently, the Cabaret Theater transformed into a benefit hall, hosting perhaps the best known Hollywood icons in support of the LGBT community; Cher, Joan Rivers, Dolly Parton, Liza Minnelli and Prince through the art of female impersonation. The show, Diva’s in a Man’s World® was held to support the Alliance for Living, a Connecticut-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people affected by HIV/AIDS.
The show, hosted by Joan Rivers (Gary Dee) had the audience engaged and laughing uncontrollably throughout. As a matter of fact, as only Joan can do, her satire and crass ways had attendees practically begging for more. Cher (Steven Andrade), Liza Minnelli (Phyl Craig), Dolly Parton (Jason CoZmo), and Prince (Frank Moore), had such a level of realism that if audience members did not know better, they could have been easily fooled by their performances. It was apparent that the impersonators had it down to a T. Every movement, costume, posture, and energy reeked of unequivocal preciseness. The show did not disappoint.
