Tragedy: Lunatic Executes 2 NYPD Officers Comments (0)

O-NYPD-OFFICERS-570

An armed madman—who had earlier shot his girlfriend—decided to make his last act before committing suicide the murder of two NYPD officers. He linked the senseless crime to vengeance for recent acts of police violence against unarmed black men, Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

It's appalling that this man had access to a gun to begin with, and that he would murder two innocent men for his own twisted reasons. Gutless and depraved. NYPD lives do matter—no one disputes that.

Nor is there any sense in the inflammatory statements of the NYPD union boss, who explicitly laid this murder at the feet of NYC Mayor de Blasio and the protesters who are outraged at the deaths of Brown and Garner.

That's absolutely wrong. The only way that bit of logic works is if you believe everything a police officer does is always acceptable and they are above the law. Otherwise, why not go up the chain and blame the officers involved in the killings of those two black suspects?

None of that bullshit works. The man responsible for these officers' deaths is the man who blew them away. He was unhinged. Never have the leaders of the protests or the families of the dead black men called for violence. It's antithetical to what is outraging them in the first place.

As Jon Stewart said, you can deplore police brutality AND still support good police.

These murders are despicable, as is anyone who sees them as justified.

Just Like Heaven: NOT THE MESSIAH Preaches To The Choir Comments (0)

BOY CULTURE RATING: *** out of ****

Eric Idle and John Du Prez's Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy) raised holy hell at Carnegie Hall Monday and Tuesday night, marking the irreverent comic oratorio's New York debut. Based on the Monty Python movie Life of Brian (1979)—with which I'm very familiar, because it was illegal for any teenage boy growing up in Michigan not to be—the show featured Idle, Victoria Clark, Mark Kudisch, Lauren Worsham, William Ferguson and conductor Ted Sperling, all united for a bad cause: running down religion with sarcastic (but, ironically, beautifully sung) numbers along the lines of “We Love Sheep”.

Not-the-MessiahHigh crass

In this case, bad is good, with low humor, unapologetic wordplay (“She's great with child...and not half bad without!”) and Idle's genius delivery making for 90 minutes of fun worth the risk of eternal damnation.

The One Where Mink Stole Is Your Secret Santa Comments (0)

Mink StoleMink is offended that some people still think she's a drag queen. “I've been nude on screen! Where would I put it?”

I needed a little Christmas right that very minute, so I grabbed my theater husband and hit OMG! It's Christmas!—it's a one-woman show dedicated to giving in to the holidays, and it stars John Waters regular Mink Stole.

Matthew-Rettenmund-Mink-StoleStole, who looks great (she's 67 going on 45) sang a quirky selection of Christmas tunes, accompanied by a game band that included a very youthful Dylan Kaminkow, whose upright bass playing was downright adorable to watch as well as being ear candy.

She really had the crowd going with her erratic story-telling, which veered from alarmingly mainstream (Mink Stole has a crush on the Property Brothers???) to cackle-inducingly morbid (her take on “The Little Match Girl” was a scream) to cheerfully sacrilegious (to address any shock over her declaration that there is no God, she pointed out she couldn't have given Divine a fake handy with a rosary if she'd been a believer).

Mink was warm and fuzzy afterward, too. A real dream to meet a woman who lists Pink Flamingos (1974), Desperate Living (1977) and (the original, good) Hairspray (1988) on her résumé.

Santa Claws: A Little Holiday Cheer From The Crawford Clan Comments (0)

Christmas-Crawfords

Joey-AriasHad a blast with my buddy last night at Christmas with the Crawfords, the notoriously caustic Joey Arias tribute to Joan, her brood and quite a few of her friends in fame.

Joey's Joan makes mincemeat of such ho-ho-hos as Judy Garland (Connie Champagne, whose uncanny Judy Garland provoked unwelcome audience participation), Baby Jane Hudson (Sherry Vine nearly stole the show with her effortless, slouchy approximation of the character), Hattie McDaniel (Flotilla DeBarge's biggest laughs come from her carefully observed gait), Carmen Miranda (Brett-Marco Glauser's high-kicks and gyrations provide some beefcake in a show filled with the cheese kind) and more.

But the break-out star is Chris March, who plays Christina Crawford as a brat with every right to be. His comic timing is impeccable, and the bitch sure can take a slap—Arias hit him so hard at one point even the SM daddies in the audience cringed. March also did the over-the-top-and-then-some costumes, which even drag virgins would kill to own.

The show (first performed in 1992) is a little creaky in spots, but that's part of its charm. Lots of fun for the holidays.

But whichever audience member stole my friend's gloves, you and your rabbit-faced wife can both go to hell.
