February 10, 2010
Check out the newly constructed Dixon Place on Feb. 11 & 18 for The Bull Dyke Chronicles. Performance artist Shelly Mars & DP’s mascot, Kirby offer a night of bull-dyke bullshit & artistry. Come join a motley crew of performers, poets & musicians for edgy, thought provoking entertainment. On Feb. 15 and Mar. 1 join Reno for Money Talks with Citizen Reno. Reno has long been bullish (in the sense of "...in a China Shop"), and now sets her sites on Wall Street. In her crosshairs, make no mistake with Reno behind the trigger that Wall Street will get what it deserves.

Multiple HBO and Bravo specials weren't enough! Catch double Emmy award-winning Kathy Griffin in her true element; live at the Theater at Madison Square Garden Feb. 18-20. She’ll have more stories, more dish, more of what she shouldn't say but you know you want to hear. Come with an open mind and laugh until you puke...just a little.

Watch your skinny backs, Sandra Bernhard, Margaret Cho and John Leguizamo! Erica Watson is coming to claim her crown as Queen of the theater/standup hybrid show with the New York Premiere of her new show FAT BITCH! Join Watson at The Laurie Beechman Theater Feb. 11-25 for a funny, provocative glimpse at the American “fat and sassy” black woman stereotype. Watson explores society’s obsession with weight, race and class and how black women’s bodies have always been subjected to both admiration (mostly by fashionable gay men and power dykes) and ridicule.
