10. THEATER: The Murder of Venus Xtravaganza 1988
Venus Xtravaganza, a transgender woman well-known in New York City’s drag ball culture and made famous posthumously in the film Paris Is Burning, was strangled to death in a seedy hotel in 1988, and her killer has never been found. Carlo D’Amore’s new play not only explores Venus’s life and world but also gives audiences a chance to investigate the mystery surrounding her death. This interactive production, presented by Live in Theater, just opened at New York’s Hartley House and runs through November 15. For tickets and more info, click here.
