This Weekend! Gays Take to the Streets
This weekend's celebration of the Stonewall Riots' 40th anniversary culminates with the Gay Pride Parade, which features Governor Paterson as a Grand Marshal. The Nokia Theatre is hosting a Commemorative Concert and Love Ball to raise funds for Heritage of Pride, who have helped in organizing the march.
Singer Michael Feinstein has invited the angel-faced LGBT activist and Broadway star Cheyenne Jackson to his nightclub for the weekend. Later in the evening, Jackson will go burlesque all over celebrities' unwitting autobiographies at the Gramercy Theatre.
In Paved Paradise Redux, John Kelly sings Joni Mitchell in falsetto and drag -- a performance at once madcap and captivating. The show runs its final weekend at the Abrons Arts Center.
