Katya Smirnoff-Skyy at Feinstein’s at the Nikko
San Francisco’s favorite Russian redhead, Katya Smirnoff-Skyy, returns to Feinstein’s at the Nikko with her newest show, Katya…Live from the Continental Baths! Join the countess on an operatic Disco cabaret voyage, as she recreates her infamous final performance at the famed “Continental Baths” forty years later. The year was 1976, and Eastern Europe's most famous Mezzo Soprano understudy played the Tuesday matinees at New York City’s most decadent gay bath house. With songs ranging from Jule Styne to Donna Summers, this cabaret has something for everyone, and a disco beat that will take you back to a time when the boys were beautiful, the drinks flowed with reckless abandon, and love was free. Joined by her band the “Spectacle Players” – and under the musical direction of Tom Shaw – this all new show is not to be missed.
With a career spanning...a very, very long time, Katya claims to have invented Popera, romanced William Shatner, and lived next to John Lennon at the Dakota during her stint in New York City during the 1970's. Once Eastern Europe’s greatest Mezzo-Soprano...understudy, the Countess now spends her days beautifying the masses at Macy's Department store, as everyone’s favorite Chanel counter lady. She spends her evenings crooning and drinking her away through the finer theaters, bars and bath houses of America.
The creation of San Francisco native, J. Conrad Frank, Katya has appeared in various theatrical runs and nightclubs including The New Conservatory Theater, The Eureka Theater, Trannyshack, and monthly shows at San Francisco's premier piano bar Martuni's.
