American Symphony of Soul (Boston-based, funkified extraterrestrials)

Dull, uninteresting, mind-numbingly boring. These are words you might use to describe your uncle’s detailed account of his courtship with his eccentric lover, Heidi, but never to describe a night spent with The American Symphony of Soul! From start to finish,

The ASS will have you shaking yours, and words like groovy, fantabulous, and sphincter-looseningly pleasurable are much more apt to jump to mind! The eight-headed musical monster is coming to eat your fear of the funk and spit you out on to the dance floor!

A John Waters Christmas

Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas-obsessed, legendary filmmaker and raconteur John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame ) rides into town on his sleigh full of smut spreading yuletide cheer with his critically acclaimed one-man show, A John Waters Christmas.

Putting the X in Xmas, Waters’s rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes traditional archetypes as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of true crime holiday horror stories.

The Face of Chiang Kai-shek: A Stage Play from China

Whether or not to accept a dinner invitation is at the center of the argument between three National Central University professors in the play The Face of Chiang Kai-shek. It is set in 1943 Chongqing, China's wartime capital during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945). But this is no ordinary invitation—the three have been asked to a Lunar New Year's Eve dinner thrown by Chiang Kai-shek, the time generalissimo of the Kuomintang-led Republic of China and president of National Central University.
