Dragsters Bend Space in ‘Star Trek Live’
Out in the Bay ventures into outer space 7pm Thursday with cast members of Star Trek Live, the comedic gender-bending homage to the hit ‘60s TV show now on stage at Oasis Nightclub & Cabaret in San Francisco. Eric Jansen’s guests are Honey Mahogany, who plays communications officer Uhura, and Laurie Bushman, who plays intergalactic con man Harry Mudd and co-directs the show. Honey tells us, among other things, how Martin Luther King, Jr., helped keep the groundbreaking and influential Uhura on television five decades ago. You’ll also hear Leigh Crow boldly playing Captain Kirk and Emily France playing Scotty as no drag kings ever before, and other audio clips, music and background sounds that make the Starship Enterprise come alive on Star Trek Live. Join us on the bridge 7pm PDT Thurs 10/15 on 91.7fm + kalw.org to enjoy this preview, then go see this fun show at Oasis!
