Julie Goldman, Joseph Keckler, Collective Opera Company and More!
December's ART JAM is thicker than jelly with an eclectic line up of comedy, performance art, opera, burlesque and drag! The evening begins with COLLECTIVE OPERA COMPANY's presentation of "LAXmas," a fantasia that re-imagines the holidays in Southern California. Dubbed "the new Gilda Radner" by Curve magazine, JULIE GOLDMAN takes a break from touring nationally to bring her brash, bold and uproarious comedy to a hometown crowd. Following a successful run at Ars Nova earlier this year, "Planet Banana's" SILVIA blends the silly and the sophisticated. Whether she's smoking a "blunt" while hula-hooping, or crooning a bassa nova tune, Silvia is pure enchantment. Musical performance artists JOSEPH KECKLER and ERIN MARKEY are sure to make their Michigan mothers blush with their twisted take on the typical Midwestern Christmas. And if this weren't enough, ART JAM is pleased to present the New York City debut of WANG NEWTON! Sporting a post-modern race and gender-bending take on the iconic Vegas showman, Wayne Newton, this Philadelphia-based lounge lizard wants you to "ruv" him. Stick around for a post-show cool down in the Galapagos black box featuring a special screening of NEGATIVLAND's "Mashin' of the Christ."
