Six drag performers graced Pretty Ricky's in the Lower East Side with five hours of musical song and dance to ICONIC numbers. Mother of the house, Ms. Lola Deville, choreographed performances that kept the audience engaged and having fun. In addition to the artistic performances, The Culture Candy curated the restaurant featuring art by MC Hewlett who is not only a known artist but a transgender activist and kindness consultant.
