It was recently announced that the 92nd Street Y is officially closing its downtown venue, where "Meet The Lady" and other fine arts programs have had their homes for years.

(a tribute to stalker cinema) is your last chance to catch erstwhile mefite hermitosis's lady-centric variety show, which grew out of a MeFi Project back in 2010 and has since welcomed guests such as Amy Sedaris, Nellie McKay, and Beth Grant.

Performance Art Burlesque Showcase!

My drunken mumblings at MeFieri 2 revealed that I do burlesque, and I'm working on an act that will be at the Slipper Room. I don't want to reveal much because I leave that for the stage, but I'm hoping it will be fun and amusing. And hey, the Slipper Room does good cocktails. The other acts are a little more deep and interesting than mine, but I'm trying to make them a surprise too. Also, boobies. [more inside]

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant!

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant! is a pageant (about Thanksgiving). Join such luminaries as Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, and Jesus the Christ as they tell the story of the first meeting between the godly Pilgrims and those wacky Natives (who didn't even speak English!). Featuring songs, Squanto, Dutch punk teenagers, King James I of England, a dream ballet, and more, this is the real story of how America became... America. But you know like AMERICA. One night only, Thursday, November 29th, 8pm at Ars Nova. Here is a thing to click to get tickets, which are $12, and which are totally worth it, I swear. [more inside]

A New Cyberpunk Musical Comedy - 2010: Our Hideous Future: The Musical! (Brooklyn, NY)

It’s the way, far future, AD 2010, and it’s a bad time to be human. Freedom fighter Kate Brick plans a final strike against the Artas, artificial life forms who control humankind through torture, brainwashing, and Foursquare. Can Kate and her sometime-lover Dehnise Compuserve make a difference, or is it already too late? "2010: Our Hideous Future" is a synthpop-infused, queer-friendly musical comedy homage to the great dystopian classics of the 1980s and '90s. It features brilliant riffs on classics like “Blade Runner,” “Max Headroom,” and “The Matrix,” and delightfully twisted tunes like "Near Futuristic Dystopia!" and "Bangor Boogie.” Tickets ($10) are available online or at the door. We have performances both August 3rd & 4th, although this listing is just for the show on the 3rd. [more inside]

Cool Date -- readings by twitter people

Cool Date: I'll be reading a monologue by your dad (who loves you kids very much, and who's maybe cooler than you kids give 'im credit for) at Cake Shop. Also appearing: @arealliveghost, @leh0n, @PIZZASHAMAN, @dry_hugs, and an in absentia piece by @THPD. The whole thing seems like it'll be a mixture of standup, poetry, and performance art, which frankly sounds like a perfect nightmare to me. It's seven bucks and 21+. You can RSVP on Facebook if you like.
