Gay Agenda

Tony’s Gay Agenda

ANNUAL EVENTS

Snowblowers (aka celebrities) take to mountain in Utah once again. Check out the newest in indie films, hot homos milling the ice-packed Main Street of Park City, and a few great parties (if you have connections).

22Thursday — Sundance Film Festival

Venues vary, through Feb. 1. Special ticket packages and single tickets are available at sundance.org/festivals

 

CONCERTS 

The waltz and rock ‘n’ roll have more in common than some may think. They are both fast, sweeping and mesmerizing (of course, that last one is dependent on hallucinogen intake). Just sayin’.

2Friday — A Waltz in Vienna

Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, 8pm, through Saturday. Tickets $10-69, arttix.org

16Friday — Red Bennies

Kilby Court, 750 S. 330 West, 7pm. Tickets $6, 24tix.com

 

DANCE 

This month the dance community is going interactive: One “circus” group is hosting it’s annual blockbuster fundraising event that ignites a “WTF!!!” outburst of excitement. Two, You will “link” with four lonely hearts inspired by Graham Brown. Finally, Flabbergast will challenge time and space in a mystical, magical fashion.

SPECIAL ENGAGEMENTS 

Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy theater, The Second City, hits the stage with a new show that finds laughs in all things local — from history, events, and hot-button issues to Utah headlines.

17Saturday — The Second City Hits Home

Kingbury Hall, 1395 E. Presidents Cir., UofU, 7:30pm. Tickets $19.50-39.50

 

THEATRE/OPERA 

Bare is a coming-of-age-out-of-the-closet story (the new genre). Students and their teachers wrestle with the angst of teenage hormones, beliefs, struggles, insecurities. There are no pearl necklaces in the opera The Pearl Fishers, but it does have love, desire and deception, which are what the French do best. Petunia and Pansy Pap Smear, in their musical debuts, are Beauty & The Beast (playing interchangeable roles).

16Friday — Bare

Sugar Space Warehouse Theater, 130 S. 800 West, 7:30 pm, through Jan. 23. Tickets $16-18, utahrep.org

17Saturday — The Pearl Fishers

Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, 7:30pm, through Jan. 25. Tickets $10-95, arttix.org

30Friday — Beauty & The Beast

Kingbury Hall, 1395 E. Presidents Cir., UofU, times vary, through Feb. 1. Tickets $35-75
