Tony’s Gay Agenda

CONCERTS

The holiday season is upon us and there is plenty of holiday cheer; but, starting it off is a little holiday “jeer” as X96 and Toyota (those hooligans) present The Nightmare Before Christmas featuring Bastille, a popular and adorable English indie pop group. Honestly though, I would think featuring the Salt Lake Men’s Choir would fit the bill better. That’s just one homo’s opinion!

7Monday — Bastille

The Complex, 1249 E. 3300 South, 6:30pm. Tickets $35 Adv/$40 Day Of, smithstix.com

10Thursday — Kurt Bestor

Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, times vary, through Dec. 12. Tickets $20-43, arttix.org

11Friday — SLMC: What the Season Means to Me

First Baptist Church, 777 S. 1300 East, 7:30pm. Ticket prices $15, brownpapertickets.com

19Saturday — Here Comes Santa Claus!

Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, 11am & 12:30pm. Tickets $6-21.50, arttix.org
DANCE

I don’t know why Jack McFarland comes to mind every time I say nutcracker … and I say it a lot by the way. Anyhoo, Ballet West’s iconic ballet adaptation returns this season. This show always gets me in the holiday spirit, but it could be because of the codpieces. That’s just one homo’s opinion!

10Thursday — The Nutcracker

Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, times vary, through Dec. 27. Ticket prices $19-91, arttix.org
FUNDRAISERS

The Mattresses of Mayhem’s monthly event is always a big hoot-n-holler success but when it comes to the holiday season it becomes so flashy it’ll make your eyes bleed. What fun! I just hope this month’s beneficiary is Pansy Pap Smear’s wardrobe. That’s just one homo’s Christmas wish!

18Friday — Third Friday Bingo

First Baptist Church, 777 S. 1300 East, 7pm. Bingo cards $5.
MOVIES

After his stellar, Academy award-winning portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne steps it up again — this time in women’s clothing. Set in the 1920s, the film is a biographical drama about one of the first sexual reassignment surgeries and its slow-burning aftermath.

25Friday — The Danish Girl

Broadway Centre Cinemas, 111 E. Broadway, times vary. Tickets $6.75-9.25, saltlakefilmsociety.org
THEATRE

The exciting world premiere of Pioneer Theatre’s Artistic Director Karen Azenberg’s and Kenneth Jones’s holiday musical revue is bound to tickle you. Rejoice in this awesome theatre’s past and it’s continuing crowd-pleasing future. You’ll be singing “let it snow, let snow, let it snow” all the way home. SLAC’s new holiday hit (no doubt in my mind, especially because it stars the amazing Alexis Baigue) asks the nail-biting question: Will Art Dog be acquitted for stealing the Mona Woofa? Gurl, give a dog a bone!

4Friday — It Happened One Christmas

Pioneer Theatre, 300 S. 1400 East, UofU, times vary, through Dec. 19. Tickets $40-62, pioneertheatre.org
