If Baby Jesus had been born a turkey, and if cult drag star Dina Martina were that Baby Jesus’s mother, the world would be a different place. Maybe a better one. On the posters for her new show, An Early Hoarfrost, Martina is depicted as such, her blue painted eyes looking up to the heavens, with a bundled body of poultry on her lap. The Seattle-based performer, who has worked with artists as varied as Modest Mouse and the Village People, brings her new musical revue to New York for three shows, where you can catch such beloved Christmas tunes as Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Sleigh” and Alice Cooper’s “Mrs. Claus She Bleeds.”
