Westenhoefer shows her Pride in the Vixin Lounge

Gay men have their Kathys and Margarets and Leslies, but probably lesbidom’s leading humorist is Suzanne Westenhoefer. A fan of calling her comedy “inappropriate,” Westenhoefer gets to show just how far she’ll go in time for Pride with a late-night kick-off show inside the Vixin Lounge at Sue Ellen’s.

Sue Ellen’s

Joel Ferrell returns to Casa Manana with a cheeky take on ‘Grease’best-bets

Director-choreographer Joel Ferrell swore he’d never do another production of Grease, nor work again at Fort Worth’s Casa Manana (where he did 40 shows in five years). Well he violates both those rules this weekend, revisiting the long-running hit … but, we hear, with a saucy, funny bent. We can’t wait — whatever Ferrell does is worth a look.

Casa Manana Theatre
3101 W. Lancaster Ave., Fort Worth.
Sept. 15–23.
