Cabaret performer Ryan Raftery launching ‘bio-musical’ about Ivanka Trump

Ryan Raftery — the versatile cabaret performer who’s starred as Anna Wintour, Calvin Klein and Martha Stewart in a series of wild one-man “bio-musicals” — is turning his attention to Ivanka Trump.

“Ivanka 2020” will run at Joe’s Pub Feb. 23 to March 13. Raftery told us that the show — which spans times from turn-of-the-century imperial Russia to today — was inspired by Jordan Peele’s “Us,” the Disney animated film “Anastasia” and the 1962 classic “The Manchurian Candidate.”


A Jared Kushner character is also in the show but is played by a life-size cardboard cutout.


Raftery’s also done a show on Andy Cohen.
