Practically Perfect In Every Way

You may never watch 1950s sitcoms the same way ever again. Imagine I Love Lucy if Ricky and Fred were pushing the twin beds together for a little afternoon action on all fours while Lucy and Ethel do interesting things with spatulas and whisks in the kitchen. That’s a down-and-dirty simplification of…

Service With A Laugh

Never give up on your dreams. Though you may want to give up on that iced tea refill you’ve been hoping for. In My Son the Waiter – A Jewish Tragedy, actor/comedian Brad Zimmerman takes us on a journey of his 29 years working as a waiter while pursuing his lifelong…

Everyone’s A Critic

The art of criticizing can be tricky. Just ask Samantha Bee. But we live for sass in any form, which is why we’re eager to see Stage West’s one-night-only performance art piece, Critical, Darling! Starring Brigham Mosley (pictured), next Wednesday’s show has everything: drag, popular music, original songs, a healthy dose of…

Don’t Panic! Uptown Players Returns This June

Finally. A Super Sweet 16 we actually want to go to. From June 14 to 16, Uptown Players presents the sixteenth edition of its annual fundraiser, Broadway Our Way. Written and directed once again by the too-talented-for-his-own-tap-shoes B.J. Cleveland, it’s one of the highlights of the troupe’s season of ovation-worthy performances. Featuring a Who’s…

Pronouns & Punchlines

Every family has its quirks. And then there’s the family in HIR (pronounced here).  Quirky barely begins to describe the Connors, a brood experiencing all sorts of drama just as soldier Isaac returns home after being dishonorably discharged. Among the shocking changes in his three-year absence, his sister Max is transitioning to become his brother. Following…

LGBTQ: Let’s Go Be Theatrical, Queens!

Even though we’re in the prime of patio season right now, there are soooo many reasons to go indoors. At least for a couple hours at a time. The arts calendar this week offers a multitude of (OK, three) fab shows of LGBT interest that will leave you not just entertained,…

Bridging The Gay Generation Gap

If millennials could ask older LGBT individuals anything, what in the world would they want to know? Well, wonder no more. Beginning this weekend, Flexible Grey Theatre Company presents the first of seven performances of Bridges: LGBTQ+ Then & Now at the Borick Auditorium inside Resource Center. Younger generations were asked to…

Like Totally

When we were in high school, social media meant writing in someone’s yearbook. In glitter ink. And emojis had to be drawn by hand, as well. Thank the baby Jeebus. We don’t think we could’ve handled the scrutiny of true social media at a time we were in the closet…

A Little Light S&M To Kick Off The Weekend

Timing can be uncanny sometimes. Case in point: We can’t imagine when Medalew Productions planned One And Only, a play about a woman with sadomasochistic tendencies, that the major headlines of the week would be centered on sexual harassment and men abusing their power. There’s nothing funny about any of these situations or…

Dallas
Someone Else’s Death Becomes Her

Until today, our favorite landlords have always been Helen and Stanely Roper. Ralph Furley a close second. Followed immediately by Amanda Woodward. Well, that Top 3 could be upended tonight as we depart the Kalita Humphreys Theater. Because that’s where Uptown Players is staging the regional premiere of Charles Busch’s The…
