Cité des Arts gets hilariously creepy beginning Friday with a run of Plastic Theater of Lafayette’s production of Charles Busch’s Vampire Lesbians of Sodom. We’re not precisely sure what this play is about. But it has vampire, lesbians and Sodom in its title, so we’re banking on it not being a Neil Simon type of deal.
The production is produced by Keith Dorwick and directed by Nathanael Trahan and, according to a press release, has something to do with an aging screen star who also happens to be an immortal vampire. Sunset Strip meets Ed Wood maybe?
Vampire Lesbians of Sodom runs Friday-Saturday, Oct. 19-20, 26-27 and 31 at Cité des Arts, 109 Vine St. Curtain opens at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for students and senior citizens. Prizes will be given away. Call 291-1122 for tickets, or go online here.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
