We loved her in “The Rocky Horror Show” and who can forget her as Nurse Carver on ‘Will & Grace.’  Now Delaria is set to appear in “Roller Derby” as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival (www.nymf.org).  According to the press notes, the show is “an original musical about the hard-hitting sports phenomenon, born in Chicago from the Dance Marathons and Walkathons of the Great Depression, with rules invented by the game’s originator, Leo Seltzer, along with legendary sports writer Damon Runyon, and which once dominated the early days of television and filled arenas around the nation for almost half a century from 1935 to 1973.”

It hits town 20 – 26 September.  www.rollerderbythemusical.com
