Let’s launch over it: the holiday throwdown begins.
Ben DeLaCreme’s third annual “seasonal spectacle” HOMO for the Holidays is in full swing now through December 24 at West Hall. The show is a chosen family-style mix of the traditional and non-traditional- think ramped up Lady Gaga medleys as Xmas carols and well-researched (via Wikipedia) songs about the Maccabees serving up a “pain buffet”. DeLaCreme’s seasonal twist on current hits is bizarre and fascinating; she makes an endearingly shrill and Madonna-like Jacob Marley as well. Cherdonna & Lou, Paris Original and Ilvis Strauss (as Jesus) guest star. Ever wanted to see bellydancer Fuchsia FoXXX roleplay an extremely flexible sugar cookie while being smeared with frosting? Who wouldn’t? Get tix HERE and watch the trailer here:
