first_img Conceived by Robert Longbottom, Pageant features contestants desperately vying for a glittering tiara. With swimsuit, talent and evening gown competitions, the show includes both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Unlike some (though possibly not all) beauty pageants you’ve seen before, the female contestants are all played by men and the audience gets to select the winner each night. The show is penned by two-time Tony nominee Bill Russell and Frank Kelly and features music by Albert Evans. The queens of Pageant: The Musical are still in the running. The drag-themed tuner has extended its off-Broadway run for a second time. The show will now play the Davenport Theatre through October 26. Directed by Matt Lenz, Pageant plays Monday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
