BY KATHERINE SHERWOOD WHITE

"There are at least a few common myths about opera that should be debunked!"

Sherwood White has performed leading roles with Cincinnati Opera, Central City Opera, Kentucky Opera Theater and Texas Opera Theater. She holds a bachelor of music degree from Northwestern State University, a master of music degree from the University of Texas and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Kentucky.

Everything Is Drag-- The Faces We Wear

BY MIKE HAWK
@ VOL 39 ON NOV 14, 2019

Mike Hawk is a Portsmouth based drag king-- a performance artist who changes his body, face, and persona to tell a story in short acts. He performs in drag shows throughout New England. Mike Hawk has gotten a lot of tips and tricks since he started performing, but like many drag artists, he's largely self taught. Outside of drag Mike is Kari G, a local (female) artist; typically drag performers are called by their stage persona's pronouns when they are in drag, so Kari is she/her and Mike is he/him.
