The Dina Martina Christmas Show

After 20 years, the alter ego of drag artiste Grady West still keeps topping herself, every show more WTF than her last. The Dina Martina Christmas Show returns with a new assault of song, dance, reminiscence, joyous fashion errors, stage banter that sounds as though it was devised by random-word-generating software, and a shopping bag full of holiday treasures (sit on the aisle if you want to be gifted!). Music director Chris Jeffries assists in Dina’s repurposing of ’70s and ’80 hits as carols; in shows past, she’s treated delirious audiences to the Pet Shop Boys’ “North Pole Girls” and Rick Springfield’s “(I Wish That I Was) Jesus’ Girl.” In just over a month, the indefatigable entertaineress is doing 26 shows (including, new this year, Sunday “mimosa matinees” at 2 p.m.), performing daily through Dec. 31 with only two days off. Which will all sell out, so don’t hesitate to buy your tickets ASAP. (21 and over.) GAVIN BORCHERT

Fridays-Sundays; Dec. 10-31. Starts: Nov. 27. Continues through Dec. 6, 2009
