Beebo is back — and campy as ever!

Two months ago the campy lesbian underground comedy The Beebo Brinker Chronicles — a tribute to the gay pulp fiction of the 1950s and ’60s— made a quiet splash at Pocket Sandwich … but big enough that it has returned. There are two late-night performances this weekend, and it’ll return again in two weeks …. just in time for Pride Weekend!

Pocket Sandwich Theatre,
5400 E. Mockingbird Lane
Sept. 4–5, 18–19, at 10:45 p.m.
