A seasoned performer, Eva is well versed in Shakespeare, musical theatre, dance, and of course DRAG, darling. She is a two time first runner up in Wellington's MX Capital Drag Pageant, and was cast in the wildly successful, sell-out season of The Glitter Garden at Circa Theatre.

Come along and let her douse you with adorations and affirmations that will leave you positively brimming with joy.
