Edie, the “Mistress of Sensuality”

The Las Vegas Sun today took a little time to chat with Edie, the “Mistress of Sensuality” in Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity:

    Christopher Kenney’s job description is “Mistress of Sensuality” in Cirque du Soleil’s “Zumanity” at New York-New York. The description really belongs to his drag creation and other self, Edie, an impossibly tall, black-haired throwback to 1960s chanteuses with long, slender (and large-kneed) legs. Kenney developed those legs as a professional ballet dancer in Oregon, before creating Edie in 2000 in New York City. Kenney — and Edie — joined “Zumanity” as its hostess in January 2008.

    Q. How did you change your act for “Zumanity”?
    Q. does the audience get drag?
