Martha Graham Cracker will be played by Pig Iron Theatre Co. cofounder Dito van Reigersberg, who has been described by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “The Drag Queen King.” The Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret has performed in Philadelphia for more than 14 years and also played to sold-out rooms in New York City; Washington, D.C.; and Las Vegas, Nevada; among other cities.
