Each show will feature appearances by a roster of guests, including porn actor and singer Colton Ford and Manhattan scenester Michael Musto, as well as accompaniment by her backup dancers, the Mollettes. New York’s Laurie Beechman Theatre, December 2-22. For tickets visit SpinCycleNYC.com.
3. BOOK: Laid Bare
What can’t Tom Judson do? A true Renaissance man, he can act, sing, dance — he’s even been an award-winning porn star (as Gus Mattox). The former Advocate columnist has also proven to be an adept, insightful, and exceptionally witty writer, as this collection of essays on every conceivable topic ably demonstrates. Order Laid Bare on Amazon or purchase an autographed copy on Judson’s blog.
2. MUSIC: Glee: The Music 7
The seventh cast album from the Fox musical behemoth might be its most accomplished yet. Highlights include Darren Criss’s spirited rendition of the Tom Jones hipster classic “It’s Not Unusual” and Naya Rivera’s plaintive take on k.d. lang’s “Constant Craving.”
