For decades Gaylord Kaiser, appearing as chanteuse Dina Simone, has hosted happy hour at the Gilded Cage. Advancing age and an alcohol-related mishap prompt his decision to retire Dina and perform as his out-of-drag self. Watching over Gaylord (Chuck Squier) while change waits in the wings are bar-owner, pianist and ex-lover Johnny (Russell Jackson) and shy songbird, bar back and Jersey girl Petey (Kimberlyn Montford).
Gaylord’s Last Happy Hour at the Gilded Cage highlights the perils of GOWG (getting old while gay), but reveals the power of FL&S (friendship, laughs and song).
