“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
This article is my small attempt not to “do nothing.” I’m grateful Salon published it, I’m grateful for the people who read it, and I’m grateful for anyone who refuses to “do nothing” as autocracy threatens our country. Ascendant, evil strongmen like DeSantis need to know we are watching.

Thank you Windy City Times for featuring HYPERFANTASIA!

Employing original music and stunning projected images, HYPERFANTASIA brings q***r cabaret to a new level as audiences are guided through time and space by host Tiresias, the blind prophet of the Underworld. Tiresias guides a journey that begins with a reenactment of the Big Bang as a celestial or**sm, continues with an ode to our unicellular bacterial ancestors on Earth, and stages a dance employing the choreography of the mating rituals of birds-of-paradise.

✨ This show is ONE NIGHT ONLY on May 11th. Tickets are available at OtherworldTheatre.org ✨
