Best Renegade Artist Turned Respectable Entrepreneur

Baby BlueStar

When we first encountered choreographer/entrepreneur Baby BlueStar, she was presenting her genre- and gender-bending lip-sync show at Orlando’s finest gay bars and Fringe festivals. Half a decade later, Blue is not only the owner of her own theatrical venue (called the Venue), but also a respected Ivanhoe Village board member. Best of all, she hasn’t lost any artistic edge transitioning from outsider to institution, as her recent Hammers and Lambs collaboration with artist Patrick Fatica proved.
