Jimmy Janowski, Buffalo’s foremost interpreter of gender bender roles, discusses his life in drag. Working with Buffalo United Artists, Janowski has recreated female heroines from such film classics as Rebecca, Imitation of Life, Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, and The Poseidon Adventure. In this session, Janowski talks about his career of tapping into the Golden Age of gay screen icons. The discussion is moderated by theater critic Anthony Chase, assistant dean of arts and humanities at SUNY Buffalo State.
The Buffalo News calls Janowski, “One of the funniest men performing on Buffalo stages!” He has been delighting local audiences with his “gender bending” characters for over 20 years. The recipient of several Artvoice “Artie” awards, Janowski was named “Favorite Actor” by Buffalo Spree in 2013.
