FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST, DEC 19
Sometimes drama is good—especially when it comes to a lesbian musical. Natalie Elizabeth Weiss of the band Unicornicopia has written a new show, Camp Wanatachi, that just might strike a familiar chord. In fact, it's on its way to becoming the first-ever lesbian musical on Broadway. Come for a preview of the show and stay for the bands and spiked egg nog. Did we mention there’s also a craft table?
