      Richmond Triangle Players celebrates the holidays with Charles Busch’s holiday fantasy Times Square Angel. The production will run through December 21.

      It’s New York, 1948. Irish O’Flanagan is the tough as nails, red-headed headliner of the Club Intime. A lifetime of hard knocks has left her bitter and with a chip on her shoulder the size of Mount Rushmore. In the spirit of fantasies such as “A Christmas Carol”, “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Bishop’s Wife”, an angel in the form of a sexy vaudeville magician named Albert comes down to show Irish that the path she’s been taking is leading her to disaster. Her road to redemption is a campy, hilarious, Runyon-esque take on classic holiday tales.

      Playing the central role of Irish O’Flanagan is local drag performer Wette Midler, who has appeared in clubs across Richmond, in her own show “Flooded” at RTP, and in her alter-ego as actor Luke Newsome in productions such as The View UpStairs, It Shoulda Been You, Perfect Arrangement and the recent Rocky Horror Show. Irish’s angel Albert is played by Jeffrey Cole (Design for Living, The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, Rocky Horror Show). Playing multiple roles will be Mara Barrett, Jeff Clevenger, Desiree Dabney, Natalie Fehlner, Michael Hawke, Baylee Holloran, Jonel Jones, Carlen Kernish, Nora Ogunleye, and Eddie Webster.
      Playwright Charles Busch is the author and star of such plays as The Divine Sister, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, The Tribute Artist and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, which ran for nearly two years on Broadway and received a Tony nomination for Best Play. Vampire Lesbians was RTP’s first big hit in its augural season; Busch’s Psycho Beach Party also played a successful run five seasons ago. Busch himself has appeared at RTP in two consecutive years in his solo cabaret act.
