by Phil Blue Owl Hooser
June 1 - 4 

It is funny, inspiring, quick, witty and there is only one weekend to see not the movie The Women, but a stunning recreation/tribute by Philip “Blue Owl” Hooser. Not seen since its Late Night Theatre premiere in 2004, this one-man show (with a whole lot of lady parts) will resurface at the Fishtank Performance Studio.
Hooser portrays nearly 100 characters, all women, with the help of quite a few hats. … The story revolves around New York City’s 1 percent, as gossip ruins the marriage of Mary Haines with a little help from her frenemy Sylvia Fowler and, of course, Crystal Allen, the girl behind the perfume counter who has her hooks in Mary’s husband.
It’s your gay aunt’s Jungle Red -- not the pitiful remake. Known for dialogue that drips with venom, this movie is a significant piece of gay history and Hollywood gossip -- all of which will be revealed, from the feuds to the injury, from the Lavender Mafia to the uncredited screen debut! So, if you can’t see the Spiderman musical, you still might see an actor die on stage.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. June 1-4 at the Fishtank Performance Studio, 1715 Wyandotte St., Kansas City, Mo. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. To pre-purchase the $12 tickets, visit:

The theatrical team of Damian Blake and Annie Cherry present a new live talk show at the Fishtank Performance Studio at 10pm the second Friday of each month. The show features interviews with local performers, and occasional historical and/or fictitious characters. Blake plays his infamous lounge lizard-esque character, Arty Vulgaris, and asks the hard hitting, the intimate, and the awkward questions. 

Tickets are $15 and available online at

Two recent graduates of Dell'Arte are driving from Northern California to Kansas City. While driving, they are going to create a piece of clown theatre. They will arrive in Kansas City on Friday night and put up a show on Saturday. No performance will be the same, as they will be altering the piece as it lives with the audience. Come meet Spatula and Pico!

This show will be appropriate for kiddos! Also, Sunday is Father's Day! So bring your dad!
Tickets are $10 in advance, or $12 at the door. Buy Advance tickets here!
