The Gleason Room Backstage at the Fillmore Miami Beach will be transformed as never before when the Divas of Chicago’s legendary Kit Kat Lounge take up a monthly residency at the venue! The room will be decked out in glorious fashion as these delightful Divas glide their way up and down the runway and into your hearts. Where else can you find Madonna, Cher, Katy Perry, P!NK and Lady Gaga performing together all in one night?
Listed by Rolling Stone as “the #2 best place to hold a bachelorette party” just after #1 Paris’ Eiffel Tower, the Divas of the Kit Kat Lounge are unparalleled in creating a fantastic entertainment atmosphere. Kit Kat is known for their beautiful and talented “divas” (female impersonators), who perform throughout the venue, providing an interactive experience like no other. With special lighting, elegant draperies and state of the art projections, the Jackie Gleason Room becomes more than just another space. Owners/producers Edward Gisiger and Ramesh Ariyanayakam have created a concept that appeals to a wide audience.
“We are so excited to enter this partnership with the team from the Kit Kat Lounge,” said Michael Grozier, EVP of Clubs and Theaters, House of Blues Entertainment. “We believe the dynamic shows that they produce and their universal appeal will be well received in Miami Beach.”
The shows will be hosted by National Entertainer of the Year and Diva extraordinaire Electra in her award winning roles as Bette Midler and Lucille Ball. From his one-man cabaret act “Electra Living the Legends,” performed in posh and not-so-posh Manhattan nightclubs to some of the greatest stages such as the Sands Hotel in Puerto Rico; Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City; the original Studio 54; Waldorf Astoria and Apollo Theater in NYC; and legendary shows throughout Florida, he has delighted audiences for many years.
Hollywood comes to South Beach as the Divas from Chicago’s Kit Kat Lounge partner with Live Nation and take up residence at the Fillmore Miami Beach (17th Street and Washington Avenue). The Gleason Room Backstage at the Fillmore will accommodate 160 seats per show. A runway and stage will center the room, with supper club-style seating in the surrounding areas.
