Purim, that holiday where we celebrate the fierce speaking-truth-to-power realness of Queen Esther, is finally being celebrated the way it should be: IN DRAG. Sister Mary Helen has come straight from church to do Purim right — be there to hear the whole T, you don’t want to miss out on this party.
About Sister Mary Helen: Sister Mary Helen (Michael Bojtos) comes from the Sisters of the Devine Ya Ya Convent, based out of the Holy Shepherd Sacred Heart Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and Fish Fry on Blount St. When she’s not busy hearing confessions and fighting sin, she enjoys reading the Bible, crocheting, and playing the Final Fantasy series. Mary was most recently seen at Lucky Cheng’s Drag Cabaret and Restaurant in NY. Michael was most recently seen in the 10th Anniversary Tour of the Broadway Musical Rock of Ages. https://www.facebook.com/pg/SisterMaryHelen/about/?ref=page_internal
