?Drag has been such an important part of my life,? says Candis Cayne from her Los Angeles home. ?I love the intimacy and the spur of the moment improvisation of it all.? It’s exciting and a great form of art.? To be able to host this show with some incredible performers was a no-brainer.?
Candis Cayne starred on the ABC prime time drama, Dirty Sexy Money, a role that established her as the first transgender actress to play a recurring transgender character in a primetime television program.? Most recently, she appeared as herself in I am Cait, the E! documentary series that chronicled the life of Caitlyn Jenner after her gender transition.
Before stardom, Candis performed drag in New York City bars. ?She was best known for her triple pirouettes in four-inch pumps and for her Barbra Streisand rendition of ?No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)?.
She later moved into the cabaret world, where her signature act was taking her show into the street – lip-syncing, dancing and climbing onto the hoods of taxis – while the audience watched in awe through the plate-glass windows of the theatre.
?Candis embodies both the throw back to the chic opulence of?classic drag and the forward thinking evolution of the art form,? says Cesar Hawas, the New York-based theatre, nightlife and events producer.? He is co-producing Le Bal with L.A. based award-winning director and producer Carly Usdin and Ace Hotel.
?Its elevated glamour and inherent grandeur make Ace the perfect venue for a one-night only drag extravaganza,? adds Mrs. Usdin.? ?We?re thrilled to partner with them on Le Bal.?
Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles makes its home in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA. Built in 1927 for the maverick film studio, the ornate, storied and vibrant Theatre and the 14-story Spanish Gothic office tower that fronts it have been lovingly retrofitted into a modern hotel ? enlivening the building’s historical soul with the scrupulous attention to detail that Ace has built its reputation on.
?I?ve never met a stage I didn?t like,? laughs Candis Cayne,? ?but the Theatre at Ace Hotel?s stage is like none I have ever seen! It offers an amazing canvas that will highlight all of these incredible ladies.? It’s going to be a spectacular night!?
