Divas on Parade in the Bear’s Den

On June 9 and 10 the Queen Diva herself Frank Marino bought her group of female impersonators and male dancer to the Bear’s Den Showroom in the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino in Niagara Falls, New York for a fun filled night of jokes, dancing, and award winning music stars.

Marino and his girls have been entertaining Las Vegas audiences for over 30 years and in a display of more glitz and glamour than a stage full of pageant queens, Marino and the queens awed the full house with star studded performances including Madonna, Doly, Shania, Barbra, Diana, and Whitney.

It all began with a behind the scenes video about the show and Linda Edder looking very much like Marilyn Monroe performed before Frank Marino came out as comedy queen Joan Rivers to greet the crowd and get things warmed up with a monologue that focus on, what else would Joan Rovers do – gossip – celebrity gossip.

Then in a cavalcade of stars came Madonna, Whitney Houston, Katy Perry, Pat Benetar, Bette Midler, Dolly Parton, Shania Twain, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand, and Pink. Between the star studded performances Frank returned to the stage in a parade of gowns as he introduced each new “star”.

The closing number for the show was the classic Martha Wash and The Weather Girls song “It’s Raining Men” to mark the end of a night of reigning queens.
