7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 | The Abbey, 100 S. Eola Drive | 407-704-6261 | abbeyorlando.com | $36.12-$61.90

Madame Peru has been performing for more than 20 years, but don’t feel bad if you’re not familiar; the gays have been hogging her in all her brassy gingerness for years. Peru is the alter-ego/drag persona of Clinton Leupp, who’s been in a string of queer films and productions like Trick, Will and Grace, Boy Meets Boy and Wigstock: The Movie. So she’s kind of a household name

if your house has a drawer for poppers and fake eyelashes. Tonight Coco performs some of her favorite monologues and songs and showcases some new routines too, so you needn’t be a Coco-noisseur to enjoy the show. Local drag faves like Miss Sammy, Caroll Lee and Sasha Blake headline the after-party and meet-and-greet

reception. – Brendan O'Connor
