With Cincinnati Pride Week just around the corner,
Oakley’s 20th Century Theater hosts Cincy Pride Week Cruise-In with
Chicago cabaret act, Amy & Freddy. The funny and fabulous duo is a
smash on the GLBT cruise circuit, and they’ll perform along with
Cincinnati Men’s Chorus and The Queen City D-Dolls. Dress in your
hottest resort wear and get ready for a night of music, dancing, comedy
and plenty of cruise cocktails. The ship sets sail at 8 p.m. and tickets
are $25 at the door. Seating is limited nightclub-format, so arrive
early and keep the party goin’ til 11 p.m. Find details here.
While we’re on the topic of cabarets, on the other side of
the river is Musical Theatre Night at the Thompson House. This
inaugural weekly event is like karaoke, but with a live pianist and
tunes from your favorite movies and musicals. Bring your own sheet music
or pick a hit from their provided selections. Come around 7:30 p.m. to
sign up. The night runs through 11 p.m. Flex those jazz hands and go here for more info.
The JCC Summer Film Series kicks off tonight at
Montgomery’s Mayerson JCC. Based on the popularity of the organization’s
Jewish and Israeli Film Festival last winter, the center will again
screen excellent movies rarely shown in Cincinnati, through Thursday.
Tonight’s film is Melting Away (Namess Ba'geshem), the
first Israeli feature film that deals with the topic of parents and
their relationships with transgendered children. The movie begins at 7
p.m. Check out the full lineup here.
