Jonathan Peters is one of New York City's most popular DJs, thanks to his long-running Saturday night residency at Sound Factory. Inspired by the extravagance evidenced in the movie of the same name, this event (third in a series of themed parties held at Transit in Philadelphia) included an elaborate set that transformed the nightclub into an elegant ballroom, including three beautiful crystal chandeliers that hung over the crowd of 2,000 attendees. The mood was enhanced by exquisite paintings ensconced in 18th century frames, and lush flower arrangements by Petal Pushers. The evening began with an 18th century-inspired fashion presentation by New York City designer Onyx Noir, featuring models from Philadelphia's MMA Modeling Agency. The highlight of the evening was the arrival of a court of sixteen dancers and performers, costumed in 18th century couture gowns and suits, to the ballroom. The crowd was treated to a surprise waltz performance staged to Jonathan Peter's remix of "Same Script, Different Cast" by Deborah Cox and Whitney Houston. Makeup was provided by artist Paul Mojica, flawless hair creations by House Productions, and choreography by the University of the Arts dance faculty.
