Countess Katya Smirnoff-Skyy has enthralled Bay area audiences
for years with her unique blend of opera pop and booze. 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.
Named "Best Drag Act" in 2008
by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and "Best
Actor" in a musical Bay Area Theater Critics Association for "Katya
a Holiday Spectacular 2009.”
Katya has appeared in various theatrical runs and nightclubs including
sold out Shows at the RRazz room,
The New Conservatory Theater,
The Eureka Theater, Trannyshack,
and monthly shows at San Francisco's Premiere piano bar…Martuni's.

J. Conrad Frank.
