On December 12th of 2012, there was a one night Broadway Babes extravaganza at the Cheyenne Saloon and Opera House, 128 West Church Street, Orlando FL. Joshua Eads-Brown, AKA, Ginger Ming, was the hostess along with The Minx. They began the evening in lusty red can-can girl outfits. For this one night only the old otherwise abandoned saloon sprang to life.
Rainbow banners were hung with pride. The saloon is an absolute gem. It is a shame it hasn't found a new owner yet. There was a small army of talented performers that night. I was seated on the second level near the stairs down to the main floor. Many numbers began at the top of the stairs, so at times I was blinded by the spotlight. Jimmy Rossi helped throw together the incredible talent in the show. Heather Barbor gave a particularly campy performance. Many performers came from Hamburger Mary's (110 West Church Street Orlando, FL) next door, where Broadway Brunch happens every Sunday at Noon.
The show tunes were followed by a dance party with Cap'n Kirk Hartlage spinning the tunes. I slipped out as the dancing heated up.
