He did it her way: Carlotta, legend of Les Girls

carlottaBy James Cockington

For 26 years from 1963 Carlotta was the undisputed queen of Kings Cross — the legend of Les Girls, a landmark theatre restaurant where all the women on stage are really drag queens.

He Did It Her Way is a fascinating and often hilarious journey into her world as a performer and transexual who started life as a Balmain boy and went on to have one of the fist sex change operations in Australia.

Candid, witty and irreverent — this is classic Carlotta, from the smart-arse ad-libbing to the intimate secrets shared, just as if she is entertaining you — her live audience of one.
