Houston playwright Vincent Victoria knows comedy, and already has garnered earlier successes with his irreverent take on Broadway's Auntie Mame (Auntie Shameka's Sixth Husband, Auntie Shameka Woman of the Ghetto). For this latest production, main character Shameka "Shame" Kennedy is a flamboyant hairdresser in the Third Ward whose life is turned upside down when her hot-but-naive nephew comes for a stay. Auntie Shameka: A Fabulously Funny Comedy is an urban retelling of the classic play that mixes in gangsta culture with a nice lesson on the power of love. Stay after for a talk-back on July 23 with the cast, playwright and director. Note: Don't put the wrong venue into your GPS folks; this one's at Midtown Art Center, across the street from Houston Community College. 3414 LaBranch. For information, call 281-832-6380 or visit banksbrothersproductions.com. $15 to $20.
