A Story About a Tranny and her Corpse

Nothing sells like sex, except, perhaps, violence. (We’re a sick, sado-masochistic people.) Combine those two and you’ve got a rated R film that’s going to break box office records. The folks over at the Empire Stage are using it to their upmost advantage with their latest production -- simply called Sex and Violence. It’s the age old tale of a transsexual who keeps a corpse in her closet for fifteen years and the writer who sniffs out the sordid story. We know what you’re thinking, “Who hasn’t heard that old story?” We have faith that, somehow, the cast at Empire Stage will find a way to put an interesting spin on it. Sex and Violence opens Thursday, January 13 and runs through February 13. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and 5 p.m. Sunday. Empire Stage is located at 1140 N. Flagler Drive in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $30, except for January 13 and 14 preview performances, which cost $20.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 5 p.m. Starts: Jan. 13. Continues through Feb. 13, 2011
