The Castro Theatre will transform itself into a saucy bathhouse in celebration of the remarkable career of Tony, Grammy, Emmy and Oscar winner Rita Moreno. Expect ushers in towels, a career highlight reel, a "tappy tribute" by Matthew Martin and a live onstage interview with Moreno. The entire evening will be capped by a rare screening of The Ritz, Terrence McNally's 1976 farce in which Moreno recreates her Tony-winning performance as the wacky and lovable performer Googie Gomez. Hosted by D'Arcy Drollinger, the evening will benefit Let's Kick ASS (AIDS Survivor Syndrome), a grassroots movement of long-term survivors. Learn More

Sharon was awesome. The others, not so much. However, Lady Bear was a pleasant surprise and her scenes in the hole with Precious were awesome. With a little more practice, acting and voice lessons, and actual scenery, this could actually be a masterwork...
Written Jared Webster and Joshua Grannell, who also directs, The Silence of the Trans pre-show musical plunges deep into the adventures of FBI agent Clarice Starlet (Suppositori Spelling), who must save the amply-sized Catherine Martin (Lady Bear) from the clutches of serial killer Buffalo Jill (Sharon Needles). Clarice seeks advice from “tran-nibalistic” killer Trannibal Lector (Peaches Christ) but will she find Catherine before the plus-sized beauty becomes Buffalo Jill’s new couture “body” suit? The event will feature eye-popping performances from Visantos as “The Narrator,” Mrs. Christ (Peaches Christ’s real mother) and also includes Timmy Spence, Cousin Wonderlette, Raya Light and Trixxie Carr as herself. With choreography by Rory Davis and original music by Trixxie Carr, The Silence of the Trans is a delectable experience you’ll never forget!
