Martha, Explained


The Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret is an in-your-face rock and roll drag cabaret starring Pig Iron Theatre Company co-founder Dito van Reigersberg as Miss Martha Graham Cracker, the world's tallest and hairiest drag queen.

Backed by her four piece band, Martha Graham Cracker performs freaky mashups and funky rearrangements of songs by artists ranging from Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath to Nina Simone and Judy Garland to Pink and Lady Gaga.

The Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret has performed for sold out audiences all over the country, in Europe, on college and university campuses from Harvard to Grinnell to Syracuse to Swarthmore -- and, of course, in her home base of Philadelphia. She performs a monthly show at L'Etage, semi-regularly at FringeArts, and sporadically wherever else they pay her handsomely to be.
