Too much to see this weekend? Here’s how to do most of it without making too many sacrifices.
While I love the movie “Pride” and Joe Goode’s “Wonderboy/29 Effeminate Gestures” look glorious – they are playing beyond the weekend, so you might as well wait on them (unless you want to go to Joe Goode’s gay night Friday even though the show promises to be gay every night!).
“Pride” movie tickets are at www.landmarktheatres.com and more information on Joe Goode’s show can be found at www.joegoode.org.
If you didn’t buy tickets to Peaches Christ’s screening of “Hocus Pocus” Saturday evening, well you’re out of luck as it’s sold out – so her fans have made up your mind for you. But there are a few seats left for the 3pm matinee – so you might want to grab yours before they’re going at www.peacheschrist.com. While dragalicious and fun with “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Jinkx Monsoon and Ben DeLa Crème joining her, it is still a very family friendly show.
If seeing this Bette Midler movie keeps your mind in a Disney world, then you can end your evening at Jason Brock’s 7pm Martuni’s show “Little Shop of Menken,” where Brock and guest Jessica Coker perform a diva showdown while belting out tunes for Alan Menken musicals. Highlights from “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast” will rock the house. Since it is at a piano bar, this isn’t as family friendly as the Peaches Christ show.

If you’re ready to get out of a Disney land, the sexy and very talented Jai Rodriguez will be at the Society Cabaret this Friday at Saturday at 8pm. Feel free to arrive a bit early and enjoy delicious food and cocktails. Or, you can wine and dine during Rodriguez’ “Dirty Little Secrets” show in which he tells of his life and adventures thus far set to songs and stories. Those who know him from his Emmy winning work on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” may be surprised to learn he is an accomplished actor and singer, having won acclaim in “Rent” and “Zanna Don’t.”
The good thing about the Society Cabaret’s intimate theatre is they aren’t forcing you to buy a certain amount of food and drink on top of the show tickets. There is no minimum. However, it’s all so tasty you might want to enjoy all they have to offer. Get tickets and information at www.societycabaret.com.
So there are many wonderful ways to spend your weekend – so get creative and make a plan and take a date!
