The Armorettes paid tribute to a fallen member while welcoming two new performers into the fold during a packed performance Sunday at Blake’s.
The show was pitched as an introduction to the group’s two newest members, the survivors of a very public audition a week earlier. But the death of Robin Wilson (aka Dixie D. Cupp) on Tuesday prompted the Armorettes to dedicate the evening to their fallen sister while also introducing QueerAL “Alley” Yankadik (top photo) and Eve Michaels (second photo).
Dixie D. Cupp debuted as an Armorettes cast member in 1994, where he used a background in theater to create the dance numbers for which he will be most remembered. A funeral was held Feb. 27.
