“Sailors on leave during World War II start the show off with a bang” Ballet West tantalizes our senses and, for me and Joshua Jones at least, our libido.

A sex symbol of his time, the “dreamy” Tab Hunter wooed the women, and daresay a few men? The actor/singer “outed” by Hollywood? Find out his true proclivities in this biographic film. I wonder what would happen if Hollywood tried to out Meryl Streep, I mean the bitch wears Prada. Anyhoo, her new film about women’s suffrage is almost ironic, I mean hasn’t the bitch suffered enough with all her Oscars, Golden Globes and trillions of dollars … Oh wait, she’s being screwed by Nobel.

Pioneer Theatre Company stages an Irish-style Hatfield and McCoy story. It’s funny though, the title seems to indicate a story about golf. Phew! Anyhoo, written by Academy and Pulitzer winner for Moonstruck and Doubt (the movie version starred that poor, withering bitch Streep) John Patrick Shanley, the show asks and answers ‘is it eternal love?’ And Pygmalion Productions stages an outrageous comedy about the harrowing suffrage of Hollywood actors. But this one is about Barbra Streisand … now she has definitely suffered, have you seen the schnoz?
