“Clams on the Half Shell,” Minskoff Theatre — The Divine Miss M (Bette Midler) in her new self-styped “taste-free” revue does nothing but ENTERTAIN. The show opens with a very well executed overture consisting of a medley from “Oklahoma!” An all-black chorus sings “Old Man River” while pulling in fish nets which dredge up a huge clam shell in which Miss M. is ensconced.

Hence the revue’s name.

FROM THAT moment on, she is in complete control — singing, dancing, chatting with the audience and telling jokes. (“McDonald’s is featuring a new Hearstburger — no Patty.” or “I know what a bisexual is, but what’s a bicentennial?” Read More

    Billboard declared Ariana Grande ‘the gay icon of her generation,’ and the internet’s divided.

    Whether you love her music or not, there’s no doubt Grande is a huge supporter of the LGBTI community.

    Her unconditional love for her gay brother matched with her continued fight for equality across the board is truly inspiring.

    But just because she’s straight, does that mean she’s disqualified as a gay icon? Read More
