Last night marked the first ever New York presentation of the infamous play Legends! for a one night only staged reading at Town Hall benefiting Friends In Deed. The cast of seven consisted of famed writer Fran Lebowitz; Tony-nominated and drag queen legend Charles Busch; Dashaun Young, Todd DuBail, writer, fashionista, and lip-synching pro John Epperson (a.k.a. Lypsinka); Mad Men actor Bryan Batt, and actress Lisa Estridge who stepped in at the last minute for Whoopi Goldberg who was supposedly sick with the flu.
