Check back here for daily updates on happenings in the entertainment and culture world of Metro Life.


Darcelle Update — Walter Cole, aka Darcelle the famous drag queen, reports that he’s been doing pretty well during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cole, 91, exercised caution while traveling, including at the Darcelle XV Showplace in the Old Town.

“I tested negative (on tests). Only one person at work tested positive,” Cole said. “I had blood infections and had to go to the hospital.”

Darcelle performs on Fridays and Saturdays. “I move around. I use a stick (cane),” Cole said. “Don’t dance much. I’m selling it.”

Darcelle XV Showplace survived on grants, cast and crew unemployment, and help from the owner; the showcase has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The club had to be closed for five months during the pandemic and the restrictions hampered business. Cole was preoccupied with business, but vowed to keep it going. “Many places have not reopened” in the old town, he said.
