Queermedian Cameron Esposito brings it to the Granada
She may look like Justin Bieber, but she’s a whole lot funnier. Cameron Esposito is the diminutive, puckish and hilarious comic with the side-mullet who elevates every show she appears on (check her out on @ Midnight) with her upfront take on queer issues. She brings her show to Lower Greenville’s Granada Theater on Saturday.
Break out the tropical Speedo! THE Summer Pool Party returns with Jungle Inferno to raise money for LifeWalk
Texas gets hot in the summer… like hot. So a pool party that includes free drinks, free food, music, dancing boys … and does some good in the world…? Well, that’s the magic combination to get us out of air conditioning. THE Summer Pool Party has been a staple of the social scene for several years, and it returns this weekend to raise money for AIDS Arms’ LifeWalk fundraiser. Admission gets complimentary booze (with sponsors like Ketel One Vodka, Lone Star Whiskey and Exotico Tequila), and street tacos … and for a VIP admission, you get food prepared by a personal chef! So bring your bathing suit, dollars for tipping the bartenders and dancers and be ready to have fun.
House of Doan, 3304 McNeil St. 3–10 p.m. $15 general admission, $100 VIP admission. Eventbrite.com and search “THE Summer Pool Party.”
Beulaville Baptists skewer another classic with ‘Macbeth’
The Beulaville Baptist Book Club has a history of bad ideas. First they commissioned a group of strippers to perform The Nutcracker; now they’ve decided to mount “The Scottish Play,” Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy. What could possibly go wrong? Hopefully everything, as MBS Productions stages the world premiere sequel to Bur-Less-Que Nutcracker with The Beulaville Baptist Book Club Presents Macbeth.
The Stone Cottage at Addison Theatre Centre, 15650 Addison Road. Through Aug. 9. MBSProductions.net.
