Owner description: Celebrity Impersonator and musical theatre performer Michael L. Walters takes the Alibi's Manchester Room by storm in a Broadway Cabaret unlike any other! Take one part Michael's uncanny and fabulous impersonation of Australian comedy icon Dame Edna Everage, and pour in a helping of Michael's powerhouse Broadway vocals, and you've got a fabulous night of laughter and music! Michael performs Dame Edna's Broadway Cabaret every Monday night at Georgie's Alibi of Wilton Manors!

I have seen the version of Dame Edna for S. Florida, several times. The show is always different, and the one thing about the act is that unlike most drag shows, who mouth the words of the songs, Dame Edna actually sings the songs with the entertainer's own voice, which is excellent. So the show is authentic as to the material and sync with the music -- and Dame Edna puts her own personal touch on the material, making it one of the best club acts in S. Florida.

I have been going to Ft Lauderdale for four years, staying about 6 weeks, and my highlight is going to the dame Edna Show at the Alibi.

I love the show, and particularly get off on watching her put down some jerk that keeps talking as the show is going on. It seems you can't keep the idiots out, few as they are.

Sorry that she has not been booked in Provincetown, as far as I know, that would be a reason to go to P-town when she was appearing. They miss a good shot at filling up the shows there, not booking the Dame.

Located in a gay bar show room, The Manchester Room at Georgie's Alibi, this show is not for the timid, but you ARE in Wilton Manors, so go with the flow and let Dame Edna entertain you. It is hard to believe this show is free, so bring money to tip generously, because this is one talent you have to experience for yourself. Even the real Barry Humphries liked her so much he allows the use of his "Dame Edna" persona. I have seen Michael Walters as Dame Edna many times, and each time is different, and always entertaining. The Dame pokes fun at herself, everyone, and everything, and like her sign says, "If I have offened you, good, tell your friends!" However what sets Dame Edna apart is the voice. The cleberty voice impersonations are astonishing, and the ease of switching back and forth in one song between Carol Channing, Pearl Bailey, Louis Armstrong, and Ether Merman wil absolutely blow you away! The highlight for me is when Michael sings "Old Man River" you will swear you are on Broadway watching Porgy and Bess. The show is on Monday nights at 8 PM. You owe it to yourself to see this show!

My partner and I are local to Wilton Manors, and we have yet to be able to find the time to stay at your lovely resort. However, we attended the Dame Edna show there on April 14, and we had the time of our lives! The food was very nice, but the show was the reason we will keep coming back! She didn't miss a trick, zinging the audience and having a marvelous time with whatever was thrown her way. What a voice! Between the comedy bits, she'd rattle the walls with a voice you'd only hear on Broadway. It's pleasant to see a show that is not lip-synched and is totally spontaneous! We will be back to see her soon!
