Charles Busch gets divine in the Arts District

Few performers are as peripatetic as Charles Busch: Actor, playwright and screenwriter, drag diva and song stylist. He brings most of these skills to bear in his one-man show An Evening with Charles Busch, where he transforms the Wyly Theatre into a West Village nightclub filled with music and stories. And you even get two chances to see him on Halloween (and early show and a later one).

Wyly Theatre,
2400 Flora St.
Friday at 8 p.m.
Saturday at 7 p.m. & 10 p.m.
