Hedda Lettuce, the self-described “world’s first and premiere eco-friendly drag queen,” brings her gay cabaret featuring her patented blend of poised characters, startling satire and original music, to Club Helsinki Hudson on Saturday, June 18, at 8pm, as part of the weekend’s Hudson Pride celebration.
Hedda Lettuce aka Steven Polito is a six-time Drag Queen of the Year award-winner from HX Magazine. She has appeared with the likes of Tyra Banks, Madonna, and Sarah Jessica Parker on such TV shows as “Project Runway,” “Sex and the City,” the “Tyra Banks Show” and “Ugly Betty,” and has appeared at such top city venues as Caroline’s on Broadway and the Metropolitan Room.
She is one of the few drag queens who actually sings live using her voice instead of lip syncing. Hedda’s appearances include MTV, Comedy Central, The People’s Court and a cameo on “Sex and the City” as Samantha’s ex-beau turned Bingo Drag impersonator. Film appearances include “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar”; “Cruise Control”; “The Look”; “Red Lipstick,” and “Musical Chairs.”
Hedda Lettuce studied fashion illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and was awarded the coveted Antonio Lopez Award for her artistic efforts.
