Love is Crazy
show complete with band from Joe’s Pub Series to Houston, courtesy of Lott Entertainment Presents. Previously known for her long-running Broadway show Kiki and Herb
, in which she played a character significantly older than herself, the Tony Award-nominated trans-genre performer decided to switch things up. “It was just a very successful act that took so much commitment and time that really kind of stifled me creatively in a bizarre sense. People just expect you to keep doing the same thing. You can honor the crowds or honor the muse. Fortunately, I made the choice to honor the muse, and the crowds have come along.” Expect folk, jazz and contemporary music, plus a little eye candy. “I’m going to look as pretty as I can. And I only hire attractive people, so there will be nice things to look at.” Lott moved its productions to the Alley Theatre this season so be sure you’re headed in the right direction when you go out to see the show. 8 p.m. October 20 and 21. 615 Texas.
