Miss Didi goes Broadway

Well, here’s a star in the making. Orlando’s own Douglas McGeoch, aka Didi Panache, has won a walk-on in the current Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles.

Didi won a popularity contest on Facebook, with 5 zillion Facebook friends choosing her over a bunch of other lovelies on the La Cage Facebook page.

McGeoch is well-known to Orlando Fringe types from his role last spring in Dewey Chaffee’s Screw You Revue and subsequent appearances in and around Orlando.

I don’t know the details of Didi’s Broadway appearance, but I suspect that all that info will be coming soon so that you can all book your plane tickets.

Congratulations to Didi and the McGeoch-Chaffee household!

  1. 🙂 A well deserved choice for a well deserving lady. And her brother Douglas is pretty darn amazing too. 🙂

  2. Way cool! Congratulations, DiDi!

  3. A proper PR will be sent as soon as the details are solid. What I can tell you is that this appearance will happen within the next 90 days and Dewey and I will be front and center to cheer him/her on! Thanks to all the Orlando theatre community and beyond who voted in order to make this happen. Once again, we have all pulled together for each other. YAY for Douglas! Yay for Team Didi! Thanks for your coverage, Betsey!

    Douglas, I am in Portland, Or. and can’t get on Face Book. I just read about this and I am so happy and thrilled for Didi. Didi will be the most beautiful person in the play. Wait till they see those gorgeous legs. Love, Myron

  5. oh, Didi — you’re on your way to the place you deserve to be!
    Can’t wait for the curtain to rise and for Team Didi to let out a thunderous roar, the likes of which, Broadway hasn’t heard! Congratulations!!!
