Hedda Lettuce returns to Seattle

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Hedda Lettuce -
Eat Me!
May 19-20
Julia's on
Broadway


Hedda Lettuce, New York City's premiere drag debutante, is back! Miss Lettuce returns to Julia's on Broadway for a two-nights-only round of shows that the world's first and premier eco-friendly drag queen promises will be jam-packed with her poised characters, startling satire, and original music. If you missed the iconic starlet last time she was in town, you won't want to miss her this time around in Hedda Lettuce - EAT ME!, brought to you by Art Ruiz and Julia's on Broadway. SGN caught up with the drag sensation to discuss Lady Gaga, diamond earrings, and Gay Pride.



Shaun Knittel: What's new in Hedda's world since we last spoke?

Hedda Lettuce: I'm booked to do the next drag variety show on the LOGO channel. The last bunch had Varla Jean Merman, Jackie Beat, and Coco Peru. Finally they have booked some real talent! I am so excited just thinking about it, I just prairie-dogged. Also, I am preparing for my run this summer in Provincetown. I have been summering there for the past six years; this will be my seventh season. My show Gives Great Hedda! runs from June 29 till Labor Day. The show is full of the very best of me over the past 10 years, plus scads of new material.

Knittel: You are returning to Julia's on Broadway and Seattle. I know everyone is happy to have you back. How would you rate your experience last winter, when you made your Emerald City debut?

Hedda: Well, it was a stellar time, except for the fact that I lost one of my diamond stud earrings. How it happened? After my sold-out show, I met this young man who seemed head-over-heels for me. We found a nice, quiet table to sit to share a few sweet glances and some tender caresses. He was spending a lot of time stroking my green mane of hair, which I didn't think much of, until I went back to my hotel room and found that my earring was gone. I can't say for sure that he slipped my earring off my small lobe, but I am sure of this: He must have been greatly disappointed to find out it was just glass - a fake, just like the rest of me. This time I will be more careful and I won't wear earrings - or panties, for that matter.

Knittel: Some of our readers may not be familiar with your work. What can you tell them to expect at your May 19-20 show?

Hedda: For those of you not in the know, I am a stand-up comic first and foremost and a song stylist second. I will be premiering my new Lady Gaga parodies, which I am sure the audience will love. And if they don't love them, I will hunt them down, beat them with my shoe until they are a bloody pulp, and then force Jackie Beat on them - now, if that doesn't make them cower in their knock-off Pradas, I don't know what else will.

Knittel: Gay Pride is alive and well. With celebration happening all over the world this month and next, what are you most proud of?

Hedda: I am proud of the great rack the good lord gave me, not to mention my gorgeous legs and incredible bone structure. I am a triple threat, so to speak. But on a serious note, I am glad I have not run into any of those RuPaul's Drag Race contestants in a dark ally; they scare the living shit out of me! I think each one of them carries a blade in their wig and a gun in their purse. Okay, so that doesn't explain why I am proud, but & maybe in a roundabout way it does. I am proud I am not embarrassing myself on national television - I embarrass myself in private or in intimate houses like Julia's on Broadway. But let's talk about my breasts again; they are the thing I am most proud of.

Knittel: Anything you'd like to tell your Seattle fans?

Hedda: I just want everyone to know that I love the Emerald City and I love Julia's! I can't wait to entertain you!
