You could say Coco Peru likes being the center of attention. And apparently to the GLAAD Media Awards, that's just fine. (Peru's shows earned two GLAAD Media Award nominations before winning the 2004 nod for Best L.A. Theater.) Coco's alter ego, writer/actor/director/drag queen Clinton Leupp, has appeared in everything from to To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar to the only slightly less gay Disney film The Wild. But Leupp is most well known for being Coco Peru in one-man shows, and she's bringing her Miss Coco Peru Takes on Texas Tourto Houston for a one-night stand at Frenetic Theater. The show is something akin to a night of chit-chat with a very gay-glam friend who sometimes bursts into song and who keeps a running monologue going on her favorite subject: herself. 8 p.m. 5102 Navigation. For information, call 713-426-4625 or visit www.cocoperutakesontexas.com. $25 to $45.
