Perez Reviews: 'Lypsinka! The Boxed Set'

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

After a long break from performing… Lypsinka is back!

Lypsinka is not a drag queen. She is a drag LEGEND! An icon that transcends the genre!

John Epperson, the man behind the femme fatale, is a huge talent and a fierce comedic actor - and we are thrilled that we got to see his Lypsinka! The Boxed Set greatest hits show in New York City on Friday night.

We had never seen "Lypsinka" before, so we didn't know what to expect. She is in her own lane, combining real old school drag miming and with impeccable timing and a fully realized show. Plenty of costume changes a rich set and oodles of glamour.

RuPaul girls have nothing on Lypsinka!

SO MANY highlights in the Boxed Set show, but the most brilliant and inspired segment was a recreation and reinterpretation of The Twelve Daze Of Christmas. We were in pain laughing!

What's also very impressive is that Epperson is performing The Boxed Set in repertoire with two other shows. That's a lot of material to have to remember!

Lypsinka is back, but for a very limited engagement. Get your tickets today. It's a must see!!!

Rupert Grint and Tom Felton may be good friends in real life, unlike their Harry Potter personas, but they're in the midst of a bitter war.

A bitter PRANK WAR!

These two have been back and fourth playing jokes on each other since they were younger, and it looks like that's not going to stop anytime soon.

Rupert is currently starring in the Broadway show It's Only A Play with Matthew Broderick, so Tom decided it was time to strike.

He showed up to the stage door after the show and waited — in disguise — to try and get a picture with Rupert and pester him relentlessly unless he gave in!

An insider explained:

"Tom was in a disguise to pull a prank on Rupert. The pair have a long history of playing pranks on each other on the set and off. Eventually Tom revealed himself to Rupert. It was hilarious."

LOL! Well, luckily an Instagram user caught sight of Tom and took a sneaky pic of him in action!

She shared the snap and said:

LOLOLOL! We love it! Such light-hearted fun!

We can't WAIT to see what the next prank will be!

Kristin Chenoweth has one of the best voices in the business, and she's proving it with her live concert album Coming Home, which is out TODAY!

[ Video: Kristin Chenoweth Performs I Could Have Danced All Night From Her Upcoming Concert Special! Hear OUR Fair Lady Slay HERE! ]

But when a Wicked diva like Kristin listens to pop music, whose talent is she awestruck by? She says:

"I'm a little obsessed with Sia. I love her energy; I listened to her whole interview on Howard Stern and she just seems like a person who really doesn't care that much what other people think of her. She just puts her music out there, and hopefully you like it and I'd say 90% of us do! Then, to have her voice on top of it… it's quite amazing to listen to her singing. I know other people have covered her music, but if you listen to her singing the lyrics, it's just ridiculous. I love her voice and I think after listening to her interview, I really love who she is. She sings from the depths of her soul."

We love that! But there's one other singer who also gets props from K-Chen! She says:

"I also love Jessie J! That's a girl who sings from her gut! I love her song, Who You Are. That's probably her anthem!"

Speaking of singing and guts, Kristin also told us how tough - and exciting - it was to go back to Oklahoma to film her special!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of our EXCLUSIVE interview (below)!
