The Las Vegas Weekly calls her, “Original, funny and a little twisted!” Yellow Scene magazine said, “she excels as one of the most inventive bingo callers to exist” and The Denver Westword referred to her as, “Less of a Drag Queen than a Drag Empress” and went on to say, “But when it comes to sarcasm, merciless wit and explosive eye-candy, Mona Lott rises above the rest with her outrageous topical prescriptions”. Named Denver’s Outstanding Drag Queen by OutFront Colorado for 2014 she is more popular than ever!

It has been chronicled the Sue Leiser is the “oldest musical theater actress” in Denver, having performed here for over 40 years! She has been a talent agent/casting director , has a resume of film and tv productions, radio voice-overs, and is the proud grandmother of 10! She moved to Denver from Chicago over 45 years ago and started performing shortly after in such venues as Country Dinner Playhouse, the Arvada Center, Shwayder, Theater on Broadway, Town Hall, Aurora Fox, RiverTree; many more theaters that are no longer with us! You would think after performing as Golde in 5 productions of “Fiddler on the Roof” she would be happy to say “done”, but not so! Yente is in her bucket list!
