Five questions for Pixie Aventura, an NYC drag entertainer costarring in Distorted Diznee, a musical-comedy twist on your favorite animated princesses.
DLNQNT: If you had your own fragrance, what would it be called and what would it smell like? Pixie Aventura: Pixie — one name just like the pop divas of today. Not only would it be a spicy, fruity smell, but it would also spray you with glitter — and you can say Pixie farted on you!
What’s the most valuable advice your drag mother ever gave you? PA: Didn’t have one, I’m a bastard child of the streets, but a smart drag queen — Bianca Del Rio — once said to me, “Perform like you deserve to be there every time.”
If you threw up right now, what would probably come out? PA: Shots of tequila and vodka, pizza, and glitter.
Which celebrity do you look most like — as a lady and as a boy? PA: As a lady, I see myself as Sara Ramirez, a fierce curvatious beltress. As a boy, people have said John Leguizamo, and I don’t mind it at all — his career is fantastic.
Selflessly plug something that you have nothing to do with. PA: My corner deli, because they always have a hero when I need it. But seriously, the Olympics — all those athletes were amazing and it gets me emotional when their dreams come to realization. Anything is possible if you just work hard!
Pixie Aventura appears with Dallas DuBois, Holly Dae, Bootsie LeFaris, and more in Distorted Diznee, now extended through Sept. 7 at NYC’s Laurie Beechman Theatre. Also find Pixie at Queen Thursdays at Industry and Barracuda Sundays.
