Choice events in the city this week

Comedy

OUTrageous: The Bitches of Eastwick

Robert Keller promises that his Halloween-themed standup comedy night will be scary good. Headliner Andrew Johnston is joined by Brian Millward and Chantel Marostica. You’ll laugh until you scream (but don’t actually scream, because that’s really annoying).

Wednesday, Oct 28, 8pm. Yuk Yuk’s, 224 Richmond St W. yukyuks.com/toronto

Film

Tab Hunter Confidential: Toronto Theatrical Engagement

Famous for his roles alongside such greats as Rita Hayworth and John Wayne, silver screen legend Tab Hunter’s homosexuality was a source of tension in the studio. Following select screenings of a film about his life, Hunter himself will appear via Skype for a Q&A.

Friday, Oct 23–Thursday, Oct 29, various showtimes. Bloor Cinema, 506 Bloor St W. For more info, click here.

Music

That Choir Cabarets: Disney

Toronto’s most dapper choir kicks off its 2015/2016 Cabaret Series with a show devoted to all things Disney. The a cappella choir invites you to be their guest (be their guest! Put their service . . . .) for a heart-warming journey from Ariel’s butt fin to whatever Tangled is about.

Parties

The Men’s Room One Year Anniversary

One of Church Street’s more unique stores — in one place you can get your hair cut, buy a shirt and get a new plug for your ass — celebrates its first anniversary of serving the community. The evening includes cocktails and a fashion show hosted by Tynomi Banks.

Thursday, Oct 22, 7pm. The Men’s Rom, 465 Church St. facebook.com/shopthemensroom

Asian Xpress Halloween

While it’s hard to imagine that the Halloween edition of Toronto’s “Gaysian Boys Night Out” will scare anyone stiff, the go-go dancers’ hot butts are sure to create at least a little tightness in the crotch region. Includes music by DJ Alex and drag performances by Sofonda and Jade London.

Friday, Oct 23, 10pm. Fly 2.0, 6 Gloucester St. aznxp.com

Mass-Queer-Aid 3

Who will you be? A cat burglar? A clown? A dead president?  Whatever you choose to be to this masquerade party, at least you’ll know that attending is the right choice. A fundraiser for Supporting Our Youth, this bash includes DJ Casual Adam spinning indie and electronic music.

Theatre & Dance

An Ideal Husband

First performed in 1895, Oscar Wilde’s comedy An Ideal Husband explores what happens when a much-admired politician is threatened with blackmail. Produced by The Toronto Irish Players, this is a play about political corruption and public and private honour.

Thursday, Oct 22–Saturday, Nov 7, various showtimes. Alumnae Theatre, 70 Berkeley St. torontoirishplayers.com

Solitudes Solo

Five nearly nude men and women (as in, tight undies only) use dance to explore what it means to be alone. Choreographed by Daniel Léveillé, Solitudes Solo is billed as a “grouping of spare, elegant dances, performed to Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin . . .”

Friday, Oct 23–Saturday Oct 24, 8pm. Harbourfront Centre, 231 Queens Quay W. danceworksblog.wordpress.com

Sex

Let’s Talk About Group Sex

Need an audience? Want greater selection? Or just like more than one mouth on your junk at the same time? Luna Matatas’s workshops on group sex explores such issues as finding it, where to do it, negotiating with partners and group dynamics. Everyone welcome.
