Pandora Boxx Hosts 'May the Fourth Be With You’

She’s fierce, fun, and a fan of legendary movie scores. Not a trio of things one would usually link together, but Pandora Boxx is far from usual. The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” legend is here this weekend for the South Florida Pride Concert Band’s “May the Fourth Be With You” extravaganza.

“John Williams’ music is iconic. They asked me to host, and I’m thrilled and super excited,” she said. “Any chance to be part of a tribute to him is gaymazing.”

As the name suggests, the show is Saturday, May 4, at the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center. “I’m really thrilled. This is something that really resonates with me. I’m a huge Star Wars fan and have been since I was a kid.”

The Pride Concert Band’s repertoire extends beyond Star Wars and the Imperial March. You may not recognize Williams’ name, but you’d recognize his music from just a few notes. The deep, foreboding notes from Jaws. The theme to Indiana Jones, and the Olympic March, which he wrote for the 1984 Olympic Games and is still used to this day.

Fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite character from John Williams movies. When pressed for details on her costume for the night (and if it would entail cinnamon bun-like hair from Carrie Fisher c.1977), Boxx played it coy.

“I’ll have to check the condition of that wig. I do have a very Star Wars themed outfit. Maybe a tribute to my very favorite droid.”

It’s been a minute since Boxx has been to Florida, but the toxic political climate isn’t keeping her away. In fact, she’s aware that any drag show for any cause is a protest as well.

“I don’t think I’ve been to Florida since we weren’t allowed to say ‘gay.’ I’m looking forward to doing drag in Florida and giving an F-U to [Gov.] Ron DeSantis.”

State politics notwithstanding, Boxx says she loves being here. “Wilton Manors is fun and unpretentious.”

When asked who is sexier, Han Solo or Harrison Ford, Boxx stayed mum. “Since they’re played by the same person, I’ll just say Harrison Ford.”

This will be the final concert of the Pride Concert Band’s season. The group is made up of 60 musicians of all skill levels and performs three shows a year: May, November, and February.

Tickets are still available for the show at The South Florida Pride Concert Band’s show will also be streamed.
