Tickets for “A Very Babette Christmas” go on sale Dec. 3.
Legendary San Diego drag performer Babette Schwartz has announced her return to Urban Mo’s for her fabulous Christmas show coming December 16.
Babette has had a very successful career over the years, but had to endure some of life’s trials and tribulations before hitting it big on the drag scene.
After some questionable work choices, she finally made a connection at a Hollywood party, with of all people a television sitcom star, “in the Hollywood Hills home of Jim J. Bullock,” she joked in a 2012 Rage interview.
In that same interview, Babette says she settled in America’s Finest City to attend San Diego State and, “never really left.”
The world-travelling performer has had a great history in San Diego. She performed regularly at Street Scene and emceed the annual amateur drag beauty pageant “Tantrums and Tiaras.”
She even owned the now famous Babette Schwartz retail store in Hillcrest which closed quietly last year.
On Wednesday, she posted to her Facebook page that she is returning for “A Very Babette Christmas” on Friday, December 16 at Urban Mo’s.
Tickets to this popular show will go on sale December 3 at 10 am at Mo’s.
Babette has said of her show in the past, “…everyone can expect a whole bunch of holiday merriment. I have an absolutely stellar cast each night and I promise that it’s going to be fun from start to finish.”
It’s hard to believe that this energetic San Diego diva would have it any other way in 2017.
“A Very Babette Christmas” is on Friday, December 16, 8 pm at Urban Mo's.
Tickets go on sale on December 3.
Urban Mo's is located at 308 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92103.
