Staff pick: Hungry Games at Axis

By
From the August 23, 2012 edition

I am still a bit unsettled that the drunk, disheveled version of Woody Harrelson was my eye’s main squeeze throughout the movie “Hunger Games.” Katniss and him with a bow and arrow. Mm-hmm. Shoot that, girl! You so strong and self-reliant!

The blockbuster’s stars, storyline, avant Gaga-garde costumes and dystopian niche are all ingredients begging for a sexy spoof.

Luckily, drag queen Virginia West has offered herself as tribute. Expect some satire that is crass, drag performances that are sassy and comedic theater that is some of the best in town.

May the dollar bills be ever in your fingers.
