Donnie Cianciotto

In This Episode

This Halloween week’s guest is Donnie Cianciatto. 

Donnie is a NYC-based transgender actor and cabaret performer. He has appeared onstage at The Public Theater, 54 Below, NYMF (New York Musical Theatre Fesival), Joe’s Pub, The Cutting Room, Le Poisson Rouge, Prospect Theatre, and The Secret Theatre, as well as on panels at BroadwayCon and #IdentityWeek speaking on visibility for TGNC performers in the theater industry. He is the subject of an Emmy award-winning short documentary: DONNIE, which I’m linking in the SHO notes. 

You can see him perform and hire him as Anson Reign … a trans masc drag performer, singer and emcee. He’s producing Drag Out Loud – a live singing drag show hosted by Anson Reign with all drag kings and trans/ non-binary drag performers at Purgatory in Brooklyn on November 19th. 

This weekend, I can’t wait for the Trans Voices Cabaret Devil’s Night SHO Saturday, October 30th at The Duplex. 

Now you’re in for a ghoulish good time for my conversation with Donnie from May 18, 2021 recorded for my live YouTube series: The SHO Must Go On…line!
