Jobriath Boone and Creatures of Street

Jobriath played 1970's, Oakland, "The Boarding House"-this straight boy from Seattle caught show-double bill, with "Mable Rounds"-1920's stripper act. Aisle down middle of theatre split 2 crowds-Mable Rounds followers dressed like lumberjacks, Jobriath jet setters , flown in from L.A. dressed like 14th century royalty-plummed collars-sleeves, pointed hats and toes, leggings, painted faces and "beauty marks". ...scene...spotlight hit stage-Jobriath, folded on floor, white hair...black tight uniform with lightning bolt down middle...and triangular mirror around neck, as band, ("Creatures of the Street") began with "Lighten Up", sung to all us straights in crowd, as Jobriath directed focus of spotlight, on triangular mirror, upon those of us in crowd...band was incredible, Jobriath consummate showman, and after 2nd act, both acts began bleeding over into one another...GREAT. Had to go back next night to make sure I had actually (windowpane- sprinkled throughout theatre) experienced this...(hatcheck girls "remembered"-more windowpane)...I am soooo glad to see someone do this story. Jobriath ventured show tune glam, combined with original rock, harpsichord-classical piano...and backup band of studio musicians extraordinaire....still have both albums...but would love to purchase "Jobriath a.d.", the movie...but how??

I write a bit, had this story on back burner over several years...and what a story it is....
