"At the Baths" with Ruby Powers (Back by Popular Demand)
Ruby Powers, New York City's most joyous drag queen, makes her Pangea solo debut in an evening celebrating the spirit of the Continental Baths, the gay bathhouse in the basement of The Ansonia Hotel which ran from 1968-1975, famously featuring live entertainment from Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Barbara Cook, Melba Moore, Mimi Hines, and Roslyn Kindto name a few.
This exuberant "herstory" lesson will feature sassy shenanigans and hit songs including "Do You Wanna Dance?," "I Feel the Earth Move," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "Friends," and more.
Ruby will be joined by music director Yasuhiko "Yaz" Fukuoka at the piano, as well as a drummer rounding out the band. Guest artists and other percussive and melodic surprises to be announced (Ruby recently obtained a melodica, and she's not afraid to use it.)
Ruby Powers performs regularly around New York City in cabaret and yes, (gasp!) gay bars. Often appearing at Symphony Space's Bar Thalia, some favorite shows include STRUT INTO SPRING, A STAR SPANGLED RUBY POWERS, and her LOVE, RUBY series where she raises money for causes ranging from The Elton John AIDS Foundation to the ACLU. Ruby Powers is a former Miss Stonewall Inn Fan Favorite, and has performed at the Metropolitan Room, The Duplex, Urban Stages, and 54 Below/Feinstein's, among others.

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
