Deck Them Halls, Y’all — Unlike My Trip Down the Pink Carpet, which he’ll take to London early next year, Leslie Jordan’s new solo show isn’t autobiographical. At the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center’s Renberg Theatre, the Emmy-winning Will & Grace star portrays three hilariously tragic members of a trashy Southern family: an elderly ex-stripper, her pre-op transgender lesbian daughter, and her choir-loving 10-year-old grandson.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas — What's Christmas without a little Judy Garland? Making merry at Hotel Nikko’s Rrazz Room in San Francisco, renowned female Judy impersonator Connie Champagne respectfully channels the gay icon — specifically in the festive spirit of Judy's legendary 1963 holiday television special — with an evening of classic holiday songs, special guests, and a surprise visit from Santa.
Jackie Beat’s All-You-Can-Eat Christmas! — Having scandalized good Catholics everywhere since her first holiday tribute in 1998, L.A.-based drag grinch Jackie Beat returns to New York City’s Laurie Beechman Theatre with her lucky 13th annual Christmas show. Yes, Virginia, it’s that time of year again, when Beat can use her gift for crafting cleverly irreverent pop song parodies to roast sacred holiday chestnuts over an open fire. Yum!
