Built in 1910, the Howard Theater in Washington, DC,  was one of the few places where black female impersonators could make their mark in a traveling show called “The Jewel Box Revue.”  Just last April, the theater re-opened and in the same tradition, evoked it’s historic past with the first drag show since 1960, with Shi-Queeta Lee’s “Salute the the Divas.”  The performances were spectacular and the show played to a sold out crowd, one of only a few since the theater reopened. Watch now as NoMoreDownLow, takes a look at this historic moment that could well become a regular event in the Nations Capitol.

Watch Now: Some of the featured performances from Shi-Queeta Lee’s “Salute to the Divas”.
