We have all been enthralled by the last five boldly themed shows and Saturday should be no different with a double dose of surprise out of town guests Jukie Sunshine and Alysia Angel as well as Felice […]

Homomentum‘s first performance in the aptly named E Room Tomb was a dark Halloween success.

And though there were moments of hilarity and fabulousness, the performance was also tinged with sadness. And now we must be in mourning.
