“I’m not making the show about identity, but it’s definitely the queerest show you will ever see”

Philadelphia International Festival for the Arts is presenting a special performance of out artist, singer and writer Taylor Mac’s internationally acclaimed “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music” June 2 and 9 at the Kimmel’s Merriam Theater.

Over the past few years, Brian Sanders has established a reputation as one of the most creative and imaginative choreographers/performance artists in Philadelphia. His imagery and designs are often startling, with always-provocative explorations up and down the spectrum of sexuality and gender expression.

 

Drag star, comedian and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” 2014 winner Bianca Del Rio brings it in her new book.

In the pages “Blame It On Bianca Del Rio: The Expert On Everything With An Opinion On Everything,” the author (the alter ego of actor and costume designer Roy Haylock) is every bit the comedy fireball she is on stage, delivering commentary on topics including romance, health, friendship, sex, family, style, work and more. Which, she is quick to add, you probably shouldn’t follow.

 

Out actor Lawrence Arrigale, director Mariangela Saavedra and  playwright Paul Rudnick at Allens Lane Theater, for a start

Before Paul Rudnick became both a critics’ choice and the gay voice of a generation, the young Rudnick wrote hilarious novels (“Social Disease,” and “I’ll Take It”) and a quietly quirky play (“Poor Little Lambs,” about a female Yale student joining the Whiffenpoofs, an all-male singing group.)

Then he wrote “I Hate Hamlet.”
