Meet the cast of ‘Lez Be Proud’ tonight at Sue Ellen’s

Texas lesbian get center stage on the web

First of all, it’s not The Real L Word. Despite the sexy ladies in the cast of the new web show Lez Be Proud, the show is to educate as well as entertain. But hey, we just love that it’s based right out of the Lone Star State. Meet the cast tonight and get a peek at what the show is going to offer. Anton Shaw hosts the evening.

DEETS: Sue Ellen’s, 3014 Throckmorton St. 9 p.m. LezBeProud.com

‘Closer to Heaven’ closes this Sunday at Uptown Players

Closer to Heaven wallows in sex, drugs & rock

The performances in Closer to Heaven surpass the material. If the androgynous Master of Ceremonies from Cabaret were a coke whore and more clearly a woman, she’d probably look and sound a lot like Morgana Shaw’s Billie Trix. In her leather fetish garb, it seems as if the director, Bruce Coleman — here and with his bondage-themed take on Equus last winter — is working through some S&M fantasies at Uptown Players. In Shaw, in thigh-high latex platform boots, he’s found an excellent medium.

DEETS: Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Blvd. 2 p.m. $30–$40. UptownPlayers.org
