legendary starlet Tawny Heatheron does her thingy

for 2 nights only to benefit Baltimore's Spotlighters Theatre!

“It’s a new day, new drag for David Drake!”

– Erik Piepenburg, The New York Times


In a pair of benefit performances this holiday season, Obie Award-winning playwright/performer David Drake (The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me) will return to the stage of Baltimore’s Spotlighters Theatre for the first time in over 20 years with his acclaimed new theatrical creation Tawny Heatherton in A VERY TAWNY CHRISTMAS! Drake’s loveably eccentric showbiz survivor and “one hit wonder” from the disco zeitgeist of the 1980s will bring her blonde-swept brand of sunny, funny cheer to the Spotlighters’ stage with seasonal songs, sparkly dresses and sensational stories about her globe-trotting adventures. With musical direction by Danny Noel, Tawny will also welcome some surprise guests to perform with her throughout the evening. A VERY TAWNY CHRISTMAS! runs approximately 75 minutes, and is performed without an intermission.

Proceeds will benefit the not-for-profit Spotlighters Theatre, which has been producing continuous community-based productions on its stage.

CRITIC’S PICK: “Dazzling! As the goofy, bubbly starlet, Drake’s combination of empathy and hilarity works.” - David Sheward, Backstage

CRITIC’S PICK: “Vivacious, a bit dizzy, and hysterically funny, Drake’s creation has perfectly blended the world of drag, satire, and theater.” – Stephen Desroches, Provincetown Magazine
