Review: All I Want for Christmas Is Courtney Act!

By Michael Block

I don't want a lot for Christmas but Courtney Act was certainly on my list! Returning to the Laurie Beechman to spread some holiday cheer, Courtney Act takes some of the highlights of the holidays in Dashing Through the Divas.
With a divalicuous set list, the RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6 finalist showcases her pure vocals in a shimmery new holiday show. From classic divas like Barbra to instant divas like Idina, Courtney Act brings a a stocking full of joy to the world. Courtney Act has the voice of an angel. She is arguably one of the most stunning queens on the planet.  With a look to kill and a vocal to match, Christmas songs are the perfect showcase for the Aussie Diva. Connecting the songs through cute anecdotes sprinkled with the occasional dig at her Drag Queen sisters, Bianca Del Rio we're looking at you, Courtney threads the evening smoothly. And if you ever dreamed of kissing the queen, she ends the show with mistletoe on a selfie stick! Dashing Through the Divas wasn't exactly a story-style show but closer to a holiday concert. And sometimes that's all you need. In only an hour, Courtney gives you Babs' "Jingle Bells," a traditional Australian Christmas classic about Santa and his kangaroos, and of course "All I Want for Christmas Is You."
If you're looking for the perfect present, Dashing Through the Divas delivers. Courtney Act is the definition of international Drag superstar. She is ho-ho-home at the Laurie Beechman.
