On Monday June 1st the 2009 summer season moved in to 2nd gear as Shequida kicked off her Monday evening show @ The Ice Palace.   One word summed up the entire evening…PACKED!  The party was a Smorgasbord of who’s who all schmoozing over cocktails and Shequida’s smart witted humor. 

Shequida performed her much talked about song parody of Rihanna amongst many others.   The evening started with a fabulous birthday celebration for Jared Bortz from Wicked celebrating his 30th birthday with many of his Broadway show pals. (At one point I went to the restroom to find myself in the middle of a RENT, WICKED, HAIRSPRAY Sing along) Although the evening started with a birthday, then went in to a performance, somehow it ended with everyone in the pool having a very late night pool party.  Shequida kept everyone laughing, and Yes! Drinking. 

I think if this evening was any indication of what Mondays @ the Ice Palace have in store for us… we are in for a real fun summer.

Be sure to arrive early as the evening kicks off with Broadway at the beach featuring super big celebrities of Broadway, doing what they do best (no not drinking and singing in the bathrooms).

They perform some of their biggest Broadway hits.

Following Broadway @ The Beach is the one and only SHEQUIDA –  Every Monday

Post show with Shequida, she told me that her kickoff party was nothing compared to what she has in store for us this summer.  I know everyone is looking forward to it.
