The Gentleman Doesn't Shave

The Club 82, also called the 82 Club, was the premier female impersonation club in NYC. Opened in 1953, and directed by famed star Kitt Russell, the club had an unusually long life, for that type of business, lasting into the ‘80’s, though in the ‘70’s it had transformed into a glam-rock bar, that featured such acts as the New York Dolls, and the Mumps. The photo of Jo Vaughn was not typical of the program shown below, but the caption caught my eye.

Frankie Quinn and Ty Bennett were among the lovelies in the cast
