Cherry Pop AZ Premiere

By | | No Comments

Time to tuck and strap it on, squirrelfriends! This is what you’ve all been waiting for … It’s time for somebody to get their cherry popped!

RuPauls Drag Race favorites Bob the Drag Queen, Tempest DuJour, Detox Icunt, Latrice Royale and many more star and appear in this uproarious comedy about what happens backstage during a newcomer’s wild night in a down-and-out drag club. Cherry Pop follows one wild, crazy night at a drag club, where the matriarch of the show Zaza refuses to come out of her dressing room, while a young newcomer, The Cherry, is tormented by the regular troupe of back-stabbing queens.

You won’t want to miss this exclusive screening and event, benefiting in part the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS. Be part of the (almost Hollywood style) red carpet glamour with RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant and Cherry Pop film star Tempest DuJour and the filmmaker Assaad Yacoub, who will be holding a Q&A and talkback after the feature. And there may even be another super-secret special guest making an appearance!

We’ll see you on Thursday, September 14 at the Parsons Center for Health and Wellness, 1101 N. Central Ave. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. A fabulous pre-show performance starts at 7:30 p.m. and the screening is at 8 p.m. A cash bar and concessions will be available.

See you there … or we’ll read you to filth! Tickets are EXTREMELY LIMITED

Movie run-time 1 hour 19 min.

ION Night at Nearly Naked Theater’s Threesome

By | | No Comments

Join ION for a night at the theatre Thursday, January 19th! We’ll join up in the bar for cocktails prior to the show! Use code “URLYION3” for discount tickets!

There’s definitely no “nearly” in Nearly Naked Theatre’s newest production. NNT has taken on an exciting piece that hits just about every note in what makes good alternative theatre, and Threesome by Yussef El Guindi is about as provocative as a play can get.

The story: An Arab-American couple—mostly assimilated, but chafing against the prejudices that face them in our culture today—decide they can do anything an American couple can do … even bring a stranger into their bed. They fail to recognize the pitfalls of such an event and what begins as a hilariously awkward evening soon becomes a life-changing event fraught with secrets, raising issues of sexism, possession and independence. They also overlook one important element: what if the stranger they bring in is an idiot?

Threesome runs Thursday-Sunday ‘til February 4 at The Hardes Theatre at Phoenix Theatre. Tickets are available at NearlyNakedTheatre.org or by calling the Phoenix Theatre Box Office at 602-254-2151.Those under 17 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

To use the code, simply select THU 1/19 a your date and then type URLYION3 into the promo code field and click “submit”. YOU MUST USE THE CODE BEFORE JAN. 19TH!! IT EXPIRES AT MIDNIGHT ON JAN. N18TH!! SEE YOU ALL THERE!
