Seriously! A December to Remember!
Times are tough now that we are in a kakistocracy, it’s time to stand up and do something about the world, support those who have less privilege than we do and MAKE ART!
And there is a TON OF ART happening this month!
The 10th Annual Menorah Horah is Saturday December 24th at Highline Ballroom, we are brining out all the gelt for this show and we even have our some of our ORIGINAL CAST from 2006! Anyway, get your tickets ASAP -HERE
Tonight through December 11th at St. Ann’s Warehouse, Penny Arcade, New York’s undisputed queen of the underground and legendary avant-gardist Penny Arcade brings her rock n’ roll blend of stand-up comedy and memoir to St. Ann’s Warehouse in Longing Lasts Longer –a fierce, visionary and ultimately hopeful critique of New York’s slide from the “city that never sleeps” to the “city that can’t wake up.”
Then, I’m going to Bangor Maine for Too Darn Hot a Vintage New Years Eve Extravaganza!Saturday December 31st at Penobscot Theatre Company in Bangor Maine.

Today is National Coming Out Day, I don’t talk about my personal life so much but so you know it, I’m Queer/Lesbian/Bisexual (though this is a limiting word as it implies only 2 genders.)
The Photo above is by Jackie Rudin fromTaylor Mac’s A 24 Decade History of Popular Music!
But FIRST let’s talk about the big PUSSYFLY in the room
So I’m in recovery from participating in every hour of
Taylor Mac’s A 24 Decade History of Popular Musicat St. Ann’s Warehouse on Saturday/Sunday. I could wax poetic on how much participating in this show has inspired me, but I’ll keep it as brief as possible, the last line of the last song on the last hour was “You can lie down or get up and Play” As you may or may not know, I’m taking a break from producing burlesque shows (apart from The 10th Annual Menorah Horah on December 24th (SAVE THE DATE!) So,”What’s next?” you may ask! I’m asking the same question! Taylor wrote, performed, and co-directed a TWENTY FOUR HOUR SHOW/ RADICAL FAERIE RITUAL/PERFORMANCE ART CONCERT. When Taylor asked me to be in The Lily’s Revenge in 2009, I thought, “A FIVE HOUR SHOW!? How’s THAT going to work?!” And after that, I was worried for Taylor, “how can judy* top that?” Well, judy, DID! And from this inspiration I hope that I can create a Performance Art/Dance/Theater piece that will inspire YOU. Anyway, I’m here to “Get up and Play!” And the reason I’m writing this here, is so that you, my fans, friends, family and community can hold me accountable!
SO NOW, here’s what I am up to for the rest of October and what you can see if you stay here in NYC!
