O Caftan! My Caftan!

Unconcealed by the voluminous folds of this Jessyesqe muumuu is queen-sized talent Jeffery Roberson (also known as Varla Jean Merman), who will make his New York opera debut later this week, in, modestly enough, The Medium, everyone’s favorite supernatural Menotti Broadway slasher opera. Details for this event— which might have been genetically engineered to appeal to the mind of the average parterrian—follow the jump.  

The Medium plays a three-week run October 25 through November 11 at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater, 10 West 64th Street, and, yes, that is right across the street from the Met. Roberson is a gifted falsettist whose eclectic résumé includes stints in Chicago on Broadway, All My Children and Ugly Betty on television, and the feature film Varla Jean and the Mushroomheads. It should also be mentioned that, quite unlike Joyce Castle, he was featured on Bravo’s Project Runway Season 5 as the winning model for the show’s drag challenge.
