Sister Helen Holy preaches the gospel of Legacy

Brothers and sisters, you are sinners! Mortal sinners! I saw you: Wearing white before Memorial Day! But salvation is at hand, courtesy of Sister Helen Holy of the First Southern Fried Self-Satisfied Baptist Church. The judgmental but hilarious church lady will share her twisted gospel during the Live Christian Broadcast, a “701 Club” tent revival that benefits legacy Counseling Center and Founders Cottage. Be saved, and save someone else at the same time — can I get an “Amen”?

Coy Covington dresses for success in ‘The Tribute Artist’

If you’ve seen Coy Covington in a Charles Busch play, you know he always plays a woman. Well, here’s a twist: This time, Covington is playing a man dressed as a woman… a drag queen who stays in character so that he can keep the cheap apartment owned by his now-deceased landlady. Hilarity ensues. B.J. Cleveland directs The Tribute Artist, the last show of Uptown Players’ 2016-17 season.

MOMIX returns with its hypnotic take on modern dance
