Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 29, 2000 17 Plentiful gay productions in 2000 Bavou Calendai > Continued from Page 16 song stylings. Between the laughs, they made you weep with their neurotic showbiz longing. After thrashing herself into a frenzy with Butt Trumpet's "You're Ugly," Kiki lay sprawled on the floor. "Mommy's all right. We just get a little weird sometimes." Then it was off on a Shakespearean soliloquy or a scorching rendition of Patti Smith's "Horses." Scary and fascinating, And unforgettable. Christmas On Mars To say that a staging of a Harry Kondoleon drama is rare would be an understatement, so we were exceedingly grateful for Ashland St. Theatre Co.'s winter mounting of this blistering play. That this production was a riveting, sterling powerhouse account was also something for which to be grateful. "Christmas" is, at all times, unreal yet truthful, perverse yet sane, sadistic yet tender. Dtetuictive in its bending of theatrical conventions, the spellbinding characters held us enthralled throughout. It veered from searing dramatic outburst to luminous insight to laugh-out-loud comedy schtick, thoroughly engrossing, or grossing us out. It was a bizarre human comedy of ill manners. Forcefully directed by Travis Ammons, this dark and poignant tale of four interconnected people who can't really connect is afire with humanity: the egotistic bisexual male model manque (Tim Wrobel); his fiercely neurotic gay lover (Byron Norton); the pregnant wife-to-be (Adrianne Kipp); and her mother (Cheryl Croix) whose unending search for love unravels her life. At the end, the stage is littered with wrapping paper, a beat-up Christmas tree, the lover who finds solace inside a baby's crib, self- deluded Mother weeping and laughing on the floor, a headless doll, and a puddle of amniotic fluid. How the detritus got there represents Kondoleon's brilliant map of the human heart. All we had to do was follow his trail of blood, tears, and laughter. The Nutty Nutcracker Houston Ballet's take-off on its own classic holiday production has become one of the hottest tickets during the post-Christmas season. It's everything you'd wish the "Nutcracker" would be if someone only had the nerve to do it. Well, the comic zanies at the Ballet do it right! Past shows have been set on the Titanic (with dancing penguins for the Snow Scene) or in the West Wing (with Monica and Bill cavorting under the executive desk in the Land of the Sweeties). Ribald and exceedingly funny, this R-rated retelling ends the year with smirking glee. The day after, you will be sore from laughing so hard. Dec. 30 Wortham Theater Center 713-227-ARTS Dirty Little Showtunes If you think gay life is a "Cabaret" or a Broadway musical with better lyrics, then Tom Orr's delicious parody is a must-see. Using tunes we can hum in our sleep from Sondheim, Webber, Richard Rodgers, Gilbert & Sullivan, Harold Aden, et al., this wicked spoof skewers GLBT living with delightful zest and irreverence by supplying new lyrics to Broadway standards. Funny, moving, it might even make you think. Now that's a novel concept for a musical. Jan. 5 through Feb. 24 Theatre New West 1415 California 713-394-0464 A Tuna Christmas Without the help of digital effects, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams portray all the loony beloved characters of Tuna, Texas, the second- smallest town in state, in this warm and cozy parody of contemporary American life. Consummate actors, these two will make you believe that the entire stage is ablaze with life. It is, just not at the same time. A memorable night in the theater for any season. Jan. 9 through 14 The Grand 1894 Opera House, Galveston 409-765-1894 Walker Evans: A Retrospective In a magnificent new exhibition, MFAH salutes and glorifies the artistry of photographer Walker Evans. Quintessentially American, his black and white eye focused on hard truths with unflinching documentary-like detail, such as the Great Depression, tenant farmers in Alabama or New York City subway riders. By rejecting artifice and artiness in his spare, elegantly framed pictures, he nevertheless created photography as an art form. He was the ultimate photographer: he makes the viewer see anew.
