Kinky Boots

Colony Theatre–Why did we ever think the Brits were uptight anyway? They’ve been telling about their drag queens ever since Van Morrison sang of Madame George down on Cypress Avenue, with a childlike vision leaping into view, clicking, clacking of the high heeled shoe. In Kinky Boots, Chiwetel Ejiofor (who made such an impression in Dirty Pretty Things) stars as a transvestite who just might have the key to saving a boot factory in Northhamptonshire. Now playing at your favorite art house. –David Fellerath

C is for Communism

Kings–M stands for murder, V for vendetta and, with A/V Geeks, C is for Communism. Titles include What is Communism? and Yankee Go Home. The night of Cold War terror begins at 9 p.m. Bring your own desk to hide under. –David Fellerath
