In the 1988 movie, which skewered racial prejudice in 1960s Baltimore, the late drag diva Divine and Ricki Lake filled the roles of Edna Turnblatt and her dance-crazed daughter, Tracy.
Prince show broadcast in Portland on March 29
Twenty years after he first appeared on the big screen in ``Purple Rain,'' Prince will return to movie theaters for one night only later this month.
The Minneapolis rock star plans to broadcast his March 29 concert in Los Angeles live via satellite to 32 Regal Cinema theaters around the country.
It will be shown at 8 p.m. at Lloyd Center Stadium 10 in Portland. Tickets are on $15, and available at www.fandango.com.
The Southern California concert is the first major show on Prince's Musicology tour, on which he pledges to perform many of his old hits for the last time. He plans to hit at least 38 cities, but no Pacific Northwest dates have been announced.
Prince will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next Monday.
