HELP ME CELEBRATE 20 YEARS OF DOING COCO IN THE CITY WHERE IT ALL STARTED!

I am returning to NYC with the New York Premiere of MISS COCO PERU: THERE COMES A TIME. Performances run November 3, 5 & 6 at 7:30pm and November 4 at 9pm at the Laurie Beechman Theatre (inside West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street -- at Ninth Avenue, accessible from the A,C,E,N,R,V,F,1,2,3 trains at 42nd Street). Tickets are $20 with a $15 food/drink minimum per person, available at www.SpinCycleNYC.com or by calling 212-352-3101.



Legions of Coco-philes know that Miss Peru's acclaimed solo shows fearlessly explore all facets of human nature, expertly turning darkness into illumination. "This time," explains Coco, "I've decided to do something a little different. I wanted to try something a bit lighter, a night of pure fun." Thus, MISS COCO PERU: THERE COMES A TIME begins at her friend Bea Arthur's memorial at The Majestic Theatre (Coco's Broadway debut!), segues into her turn as the HIV-positive drag queen Angel in the original backers audition of Rent, and continues on with a litany of wryly pointed observations of life as only Miss Coco Peru can deliver.



Storyteller/monologist Miss Coco Peru aka Clinton Leupp grew up in the Bronx on City Island and got his/her start as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of NYC after he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in his first show Miss Coco Peru in My Goddamn Cabaret in the early 90s. On screen, Miss Coco is best known for her roles in Jim Fall's trick (Sundance 1999) and Richard Day's comedy Girls Will Be Girls. Other film appearances include To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar and Straight-Jacket. Coco can be heard in the Disney animated feature, The Wild as Mamma Hippo! Coco has appeared on TV in How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, Twins, Will and Grace, Bravos Boy Meets Boy, Bravos Sexiest Moments in Film, Bravos Welcome to the Parker, and in an Orbitz commercial that was nominated for a 2005 GLAAD Media Award. On MTVs Gay network, LOGO, Coco can currently be seen in her very own half-hour comedy special taped as part of the Wisecrack series and as well as the special One Night Stand-Up Drag Queens.
