Joan Rivers impersonator Joe Posa is teaming up with charismatic crooner Seth Sikes for a one-night-only tribute to everyone’s favorite LGBT icons, including Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland and more.
The entertainers are coming to the Sunshine Cathedral Center for the Arts, 1480 S.W. 9th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 8 p.m.
While Posa is a familiar face on South Florida stages, Sikes regularly performs old-fashioned nightclub acts with a full band for sold-out houses at Feinstein’s/54 Below and other venues in New York City. His debut show, “Seth Sikes Sings Judy Garland,” was named BroadwayWorld’s Best Tribute Show.
During the pandemic, Sikes created a series of funny music video parodies set on Fire Island that have been viewed online more than 100,000 times. His “Ring Them Bells” parody was selected to close Liza Minnelli’s 75th birthday tribute.
Tickets start at $35 at SunshineCathedral.org/Arts.
Slow Burn Unveils 2023-24 Season
Slow Burn Theatre Co., the regional company in residence at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, revealed its 2023-24 season on New Year’s Day as part of a clever online marketing plan. The company, which specializes in big Broadway musicals, teased followers with an illustration full of “clues”?
While many weighed in with their guesses, the five-show lineup still offered some surprises: “Into the Woods,” “Disney’s The Little Mermaid,” “Sister Act,” “The Prom” and “The SpongeBob Musical.” We’re especially looking forward to a “pineapple under the sea” on the Amaturo Theater stage.

When You’ve Already Got the Perfect Set
Critics and audiences alike raved at the real swimming pool set designer and master carpenter Melquisedel Dominguez built inside the Foundry for Plays of Wilton’s latest production, “Red Speedo.” The pool was heated and treated and – according to rumors – hosted a few private performances after the audiences left.
It was no surprise that producer Ronnie Larsen would seek to get the most bang for the buck and he’s bringing back his 2022 hit “Sauna” for a limited run, Jan. 4 – 14. The revival stars ripped newcomer Etienne Lartigau wearing not a red speedo, but a white towel for most of the show. Expect more celebrity cameos and plenty of naughty gay humor.
Tickets start at $37.50 at RonnieLarsen.com.
