Also, this week will be your last chance to see the fabulous Bella Cane and the delightfully ratchet Ms. Pissi Myles in a hilarious adaptation of Charles Busch’s Psycho Beach Party, and the fact that it’s already Tuesday means that you should’ve had it all figured out by now, so get your planning on right….now.
