with the initials MA are calling it the biggest casting coup of the decade: For this Sunday’s installment of Logo’s Mystery Science Theater-esque screening series Cocktails & Classics, host Michael Urie recruited one of the most celebrated, revered and humble names in entertainment journalism — me!
And if that’s not enough to get you to tune in (he says humbly!), the episode’s guest list also includes Orange Is the New Black‘s Lea DeLaria, actor-comedian Drew Droege, RuPaul’s Drag Race alum D.J. “Shangela” Pierce, and… Jane freakin’ Fonda!
Well, sexed-up, crazily-constumed, ’60s-era Jane Fonda. (The theme is Barbarella!)
“When you think of camp classics, you have to think Barbarella,” says Urie, who also serves as an exec producer alongside significant other Ryan Spahn. “Barbarella is very funny on purpose, but it’s also very funny by accident.”
Press PLAY below for a sneak peek of
me Sunday’s outing, and then mark your calendars because I’ll be back next week when Urie & Co. tackle Cabaret.
