This Week in Modern Fabulousity - June 5, 2006

When you're done relaxing for your Memorial Day, begin your summer thusly:

FILM: A Prairie Home Companion
in theatres nationwide
Is Robert Altman's latest ensemble film as good as everyone says it is? Only one way to be sure, but we'll take our chances on Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, Kevin Kline, John C. Reilly, Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones and Maya Rudolph, who supposedly steals the show.

ART: Just Men
through August 11 - LGBT Center - 208 West 13th Street, NYC
Because three of the world's best photographers -- Joe Oppedisano, Michael Alago, and Jeff Eason -- have come together for a spectacular exhibit dedicated to the male figure. Hot damn!

THEATER: Broadway Backwards
June 5 - 7pm - LGBT Center - 208 West 13th Street, NYC
Because this gender-twisting night of show tunes boasts a cast to die for: Charles Busch (Die Mommie Die), Matt Cavenaugh (Urban Cowboy/Grey Gardens), Cheyenne Jackson (All Shook Up), Andrea McArdle (Annie), Priscilla Lopez (A Chorus Line), Karen Mason (Mamma Mia), Michael McElroy (Big River/Wild Party), Steven Brinberg (Funny Girl concert, Mac & Bistro Awards) and a dozen more.

DANCE: Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People
June 6-10 - 7:30pm - Dance Theatre Workshop - 219 W. 19th Street
Because this return performance of Retrospective Exhibitionist explores what the audience sees...and what the performer gives. Very cool post-modern stuff.

MUSIC: James Brown
June 8-9 - 8pm - B.B. Kings Blues Club and Grill - 237 West 42nd Street
C'mon. You know you want to see the Godfather of Soul at least once. (And how many more chances are you going to get?)
