Three tales by the Brothers Grimm about lonely couples yearning for a child. Sounds kind of tame, but the horror of it all will turn you white as snow. If you can’t make it to the show at least listen to it on the radio … it’s always so fabulous! Thank you Plan-B Theatre Company.

There’s a little something new and a little something classic this month in concerts. An up-and-coming jazz artist performs (she’s busty and hot, I can say that cause I’m gay); a typically thrilling and a bit odd performance is sure to be had on the Violet Flame Tour (Oh, that Andy, he’s a pickle!); a sweet transvestite performs (I don’t mean Big Freedia), a new concert program at Pioneer Theatre Company; The Urban Lounge will be bouncing on the 15th, and a gay conductor takes on the Cirque.

“Go have boys’ night out” really means “I’ll stay home and touch my clit.” Wanda Sykes in Salt Lake City??!!?? I’m sure the things that will come out of her mouth will make the Moroni’s horn wilt. SB Dance presents a show about love gone weird. It contains nudity, vulgarity and hilarity … doesn’t sound that weird to me. At the Kit Kat Cabaret you will “experience the elegance and glamour of a cabaret lounge set back in time. When entertainment was dazzling and decadent. Where men arrived in their top hats and bow ties, and ladies in their furs (sorry PETA) and pearls (sorry Brenda).
