The Cat's Meow
Two contortionists take the stage at (le) poisson rouge tonightboth the vocal and physical kind. First, theres Joey Arias, the Cirque du Soleil drag star, in a reprise of his knockout jazz show last fall. Arias contorts his pipes into a slinky, Billie Holiday purr, all while managing to keep breathing in the tightest corset weve ever seen. Then theres Meow Meow, the Australian vamp who ties herself in knots, splaying her limbs among the male contingent of the audience while belting standards such as Surabaya Johnny. Either of these two cabaret luminaries would make your month. Heres the rare opportunity to be blown away by both in one night. Joey Arias at 7, $35; Meow Meow at 10:30, $25, (le) poisson rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, 212-505-3474, lepoissonrouge.com
