The well-known Chicago cabaret star Spider Saloff is to appear in her self-penned, one-woman musical, "The Roar of the Butterfly" at Victory Gardens' Richard Christiansen Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave., in May.
The show, previously seen in Los Angeles and Melbourne, features Saloff playing eight different characters. The titluar character is an Asian drag queen, at whose memorial service the show is set, with Saloff playing a diverse group of attendees. Opening night is set for May 3; Saloff says she intends to take the show off-Broadway.
