Jomama Jones: Radiate
If I hadn’t known she was actually the drag creation of performance artist Daniel Alexander Jones — credited in the program as “Jomama’s cousin” — I might’ve believed that Jomama Jones truly was an ’80s soul diva launching a comeback after years of self-imposed European exile. Though better suited to an intimate cabaret, Jomama’s jazzy grooves and spiritual-sassy banter were as tasty as her backup singers, the Sweet Peaches.
Soho Rep, closed January 15.
Out director Travis Chamberlain fearlessly staged the New York premiere of Tennessee Williams’s explosive 1970 one-act in a hotel room, transforming the intimate 14-seat space into a N’Awlins honeymoon hovel. Adam Couperthwaite and Erin Markey played with fire as a shell-shocked soldier and his combatively lascivious wife — a comment on heterosexual deviance as Williams came out publicly — and the audience felt the heat.
Hudson Hotel, closed January 30.
