PALM SPRINGS, CA: KINSEY SICKS AT THE COPA
With a phenomenal performance record that includes an Off-Broadway show, an extended run in Vegas, two feature films, eight albums, and appearances throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia, The Kinsey Sicks perform at THE COPA (244 East Amado Road, Palm Springs CA - 760-866-0021) on Friday & Saturday, June 12th & 13th at 8:00 pm. They hardly need an introduction. For over 20 years America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet has served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing arts centers, music venues and comedy festivals in every kind of town you can imagine, in over 40 states! Their award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire and over-the-top drag have earned the Kinsey Sicks a diverse and devoted following. The Kinsey Sicks began in 1993 as a group of friends who went to a Bette Midler concert in San Francisco dressed as the Andrews Sisters. Assuming they'd be among many drag queens, they found themselves to be the only ones (other than Bette, of course). They were approached that night to perform at an upcoming event. Their reply - "we don't sing" - was quickly disproved when they realized that all of them had musical backgrounds. They began singing and harmonizing that night, and the seed for the Kinsey Sicks was planted. In July 1994, the Kinsey Sicks drew a large and enthusiastic crowd at their first public performance on a street corner in San Francisco's Castro District. Since then, the Kinsey Sicks have produced and performed full-length theatrical productions around the country in such prestigious venues as the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, the Nordstrom Recital Hall in Seattle, the Broward Center in Ft. Lauderdale, the Hobby Center in Houston, the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen and the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. In 2001, the girls produced and starred in the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway hit, "Dragapella! Starring the Kinsey Sicks" at New York's legendary Studio 54. That production received a nomination for a Lucille Lortel award (the Off-Broadway Tony) as Best Musical and a Drama Desk nomination for Best Lyrics. In 2006 the girls wowed audiences with a much-coveted extended run at the Las Vegas Hilton. The Kinsey Sicks have recorded eight albums: Dragapella, Boyz 2 Girlz, Sicks in the City, I Wanna Be a Republican, Oy Vey in a Manger: Christmas Carols and Other Jewish Music, Sicks! Sicks! Sicks! Each Hit & I, Electile Dysfunction. They have been profiled on national television, including "20/20" and "CBS Early Show with Bryant Gumbel," and were the subjects of a lengthy cover feature in the arts section of the New York Times. The Kinsey Sicks are the subjects of two feature films: a concert film, "I Wanna Be a Republican" and a behind-the-scenes documentary, "Almost Infamous," chronicling the adventure of the group's extended run at the Las Vegas Hilton.

SAN DIEGO, CA: SATURDAYS WITH CAROL CURTIS
Carol Curtis performs at MARTINI'S ABOVE FOURTH (3940 4th Avenue, San Diego, CA - 619-400-4500) pm Saturdays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The musical road from Riverside, California to San Diego rambles through Nevada, Oklahoma and almost every state in between, where Carol Curtis traveled as a musician. With a degree in music education from Oklahoma State University, she inspired young minds for several years, only to return to her true calling: cabaret-style singing. Playing the audience as skillfully as she plays piano and guitar, Carol weaves an eclectic mix of torch songs, Broadway and standards into an evening of fun repartee. No cover charge.
LOS ANGELES: ROMEO & JULIET: LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD
Kate Pazakis and Bradley Bredeweg present "Romeo & Juliet: Love is a Battlefield" at ROCKWELL: TABLE & STAGE (1714 Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA - 323-669-1550) on Saturday, June 13th at 8:00 pm. At last! The world's most famous playwright meets lycra-clad '80s rock star Pat Benatar. An epic collaboration centuries in the making, Romeo + Juliet: Love Is a Battlefield features Nickelodeon star Ashley Argota as Juliet and hunky singer/actor Rustin Cole Sailors as Romeo as they belt out some of Benatar's biggest hits to tell the timeless story of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers. A delightfully upbeat twist to the classic story, the modern adaptation will both move you to tears and make you want to move your feet at Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Feliz. There is a $20-$45 cover.
LOS ANGELES, CA: MAUDE MAGGART AT THE GARDENIA
Maude Maggart brings her new show "Do Something" to THE GARDENIA (7066 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA - 323-467-7444) on Thursday through Saturday, June 11th through 13th at 9:00 pm. "Do Something" is the fitting title of a recording by Helen Kane (the original Betty Boop,) whose legacy is featured in this show along with those of such luminaries from the 1920s as Helen Morgan, Ruth Etting, Libby Holman, Alberta Hunter, and Josephine Baker. She has been described as a "strikingly beautiful and poised performer," and has been widely praised for her vocal talent, her intelligent, emotional, witty interpretations, as well as for her taste in song selection primarily from the American popular song book featuring the works of Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Vernon Duke, and Rodgers and Hart. She has paid vocal tribute in her concerts to such popular singers and predecessors as Helen Morgan, Annette Hanshaw, Ruth Etting, Alice Faye, Helen Forrest and lryicist Marshall Barer. Her many concerts and cabaret appearances have featured established standards as well as exquisite renditions of songs by Jackson Browne and Joan Baez. Call for cover/minimum information.
