Previously on Pajiba, we gushed over the glory that was Tom Lenk’s low-budget drag, where he’d recreate the looks of divas using garbage bags, pasta, and a boundless ingenuity. Now, we’re gagging because the former Buffy The Vampire baddie is bringing his biting wit and bonkers impersonations to the stage. And best of all, he’s focusing on Pajiba favorite Tilda Swinton (A.K.A. SWINTON).
Premiering tonight at The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Tilda Swinton Answers An Ad On Craiglist tells the story of “an isolated and aimless gay man” (Byron Lane) whose life is forever changed when his “roommate wanted” ad brings the acclaimed etherial actress (Lenk) to his door. Per the press release: “The two very different personalities clash immediately as things get hysterically chaotic and surprisingly cathartic.”
You had us at SWINTON. But Lenk gave a taste of what’s to come with this promo video:
Tilda Swinton Answers An Ad On Craiglist runs March 16th to March 25th.
