Martha Graham Cracker

July 31st, 2018  |  Published in Artists

Hailing from the City of Brotherly Love and a regular at Joe’s Pub, Martha Graham Cracker is the tallest, hairiest drag queen in the world.  Her monthly cabaret series at L’Etage in Philadelphia has been running for over 12 years now.  From inventing a new form of exercise– bartop Pilates– to channeling Chaka Khan, to making her shameless sexual advances on hapless audience members, she is a revolution in a wig.  Martha’s musical stylings are presented regularly at Joe’s Pub, the Kimmel Center, the Trocadero, The Walker Art Center, Oberon in Boston, The TLA, the Mayor’s Reception Room at City Hall, the Sofitel, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Martha is contained within the body of Dito van Reigersberg, one of the co-founders of the OBIE-winning Pig Iron Theatre Company.
