A preview of Tallahassee Ballet's "Sleeping Beauty" by Mark Hinson for The Tallahassee Democrat.
Guest dancer Aaron Ingley is stepping into the role of Angelina Jolie, er, sorry, Maleficent for the Tallahassee Ballet's turn on the fairy tale.
"Yes, I will be in full drag in front of my friends and family and fiancee," Ingley, 36, said and laughed on Wednesday night during a dress rehearsal. "There is a tradition of men playing this role, so me doing it in drag is nothing new. It's a great role, though. I play it as big and evil as possible with a lot of scorn and envy."
