Nutcracker Rouge

[Note: The review below is from a previous run of Nutcracker Rouge. The revived production is at XIV, Company XIV's new home in the East Village, and the current cast does not include Marisol Cabrera and Jeff Takacs.) Nutcracker Rouge.

Bushwig

Bushwig's third incarnation at Secret Project Robot was supersized Most popular events this week Bushwig, an annual celebration of the gender-bending arts in north Brooklyn, unfurled at Secret Project Robot this weekend—spreading across an entire weekend for the first time. Boundary-pushing acts took the stage, showing off everything from old-school lip-synching to epic dance routines and performance art that defies description. There was even a wedding! Familiar faces in the crowd (and onstage) included RuPaul's Drag Race alum Milk, downtown veteran Linda Simpson and Wigstock founder (and our pick for NYC's No. 1 queen) Lady Bunny, who stopped by to check out the action on Sunday. In a few short years, Bushwig has cemented itself as one of the city's best queer events. Here's looking forward to what these wacky kids do next.
