Mommie Queerest is an LA Weekly award-winning play that envisions Joan Crawford as a secret transsexual, a fact her daughter is trying to flash to the world. It's coming through South Florida on a national tour. A male actor with a striking resemblance to the already mannish-looking Crawford will star alongside three other men at the cozy, crazy Empire Stage (1140 N. Flagler Drive, Fort Lauderdale). The play premieres at 8 p.m. Thursday and runs through August 28. Tickets cost $25. Free wine. Call 954 678-1496, or visit empirestage.com.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 11. Continues through Aug. 28, 2011
